"Lollipop Stick" Ends Redux

Garth Groff <sarahsan@...>
 

Friends,

After my post I noted a couple of omissions to the list of cars with Pullman "PS-0" or "Lollipop Stick" ends.

The corrected list follows for anyone keeping score. The entries I corrected are marked with a star ( * ).

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff
