    Hee Hee...its the green car you pictured. It's lettered for the Penn Central railroad which is my favorite even though its not often considered a popular road to model. I'm always tickled to see PC equipment of any sort. I'm funny that way. :)

    I model in a different scale and use different equipment than the items you have. There are plenty of members on the forum who should be more familiar with your kind of stuff though and will have some advice regarding cleaning and maintenance. Keep checking your thread and good luck! :thumb:
