Re: Photos wanted of Pennsy GS gons

Bowser still has not caught on to the mistake and that the right hand brake wheel location only applies to cars prior to the Safety Appliance act of 1911 which required the brake wheels to be moved to the left hand side. They still have not caught onto the fact that many of their cars are as-built, rather than the more contemporary rebuilds and refits that allowed the cars to still be in use into the fifties and sixties!
