I know that most of PA steam locos are Brunswick Green but I read some where that the frames and the leading , trailing and tender trucks were painted black. I wish someone would verify this and also let me know if there is something else I should know. I have a bowser 2-10-0 that is now progressed to the painting stage and would really appreciate the info.
Thanks Leon

PA used instead of PRR or PENNSY

I have been corrected in using an abrevation for the Pennsylvania Railroad. I have been using 'PA' instead of 'Pennsy' or 'PRR". I was not aware that PA referred to a deasel locomotive. I am sorry if this caused anyone some confusion.

Hey Leon I was just in Orbisonia on Saturday....That place was bustling...Lot's of people still like to see those PA Locomotives...PRR wasn't the only railroad running here in our great state.
