I tacked those eight cars on the rear of 48 after I tuned them on the wye. Not a fun experience going around a very tight curve with long heavy six axle cars.

On my trip last week, I noticed some PV's at Albany north of the station. Any info on these?

The two GN domes, NYC round end obs and UP Pullman are owned by J. Webb(WEBX). One of the better private car owners I have met. Father owns a completely restored Greyhound Vista Cruiser but I digress. NYC3 was a Presidents car new owner currently. C&O Chapel Hill was at one time owned by E.F. Hutton (we talk people listen) another Presidents car. Current owner has always been pretty good with the yard crews offered extra pizza last night while we made up the AAPRCO special. All cars are stored in Albany owners can be contacted through the AAPRCO web site.
