I have picked up four incorrectly painted Penn Central coach bodes from Rapido. The factory painted the window band in the freight color Jade Green vs. the correct darker Deep Water Green used on PC's passenger cars. The shells are complete and include the windows, diaphragms, grab irons etc.. They posted that they had the shells, on the on the Penn Central Yahoo group and they were giving them away, you just needed to cover the cost of shipping. Now the question is what to do with them. I am thinking of repainting the band on one or two of them and using some of the old E&B Valley underframe components and having some very nice coaches. I may have some other ideas as well. Stay tuned.
