     Nice photos of VERY full loads. The "Pee-Mickey," as it was known in Pittsburgh, though long part of P&LE, remained in view for many years because P&LE apparently saw no need to rush reprinting the reporting marks.
      As late as 1953, the ORER shows over 3000 PMcK&Y cars among the 26,000 P&LE fleet.
