    Missed NS's Penn Central Heritage Unit this morning [ ], but heard the Dispatcher give clearance for another freight to leave the yard. I raced north to a spot I'd picked out and made it with one minute to spare. That's MP 101, 101 Miles from Charlotte Junction, NC.

    Nice catch Sandpatch! When you get that new GTI you'll have 2 minutes to line up your shot.

    Yay -- I caught up with NS's Penn Central Heritage Unit this afternoon, taking empty rock train 63R through Columbia. She's diverging on to the W Line to Spartanburg here.

    PC used green with white lettering on its box cars & cabooses as I recall. Their engines were black & lettered like this one although their locomotives really looked pretty ratty. At least that is how this old guy remembers them.

    Your memories are spot on. I was shooting b&w back then (why waste unaffordable color film on b&w locomotives ) and found this one taken at Union Station in Chicago in about 1975.

    Here's one of their Jade Green boxcars like you remember. I think I shot this in Montgomery, AL in the mid-1980s. Their logo was known as the "mating worms".
