Re: Tichy P&LE Rebuilt Boxcar - need some painting help

David Sieber

Appreciate your reply; I'd figured as much. Given the size of the P&LE collection, it's great that even 3% of those images are online, but we can always hope that digitizing is an ongoing project. Then again, the Pitt Archives have many more collections, doubtless all deserving of digitization, so we'll just have to wait patiently and be grateful for all that they've been able to provide for us so far.
Thanks again, Dave Sieber, Reno NV

Yes, I viewed hard copy photos here in Pittsburgh that aren't online. From the Pitt Archives web site at:
The complete P&LE collection, held by the Archives Service Center (ASC) at the University of Pittsburgh, comprises 16,400 images taken between 1883 and 1970.

A reasonably complete list of the images in the P&LE collection is available online at:

I went through all 522 photos in the Pitt Archives online P&LE collection - really great photos, but no P&LE (or PMcK&Y) 83400 pix. That was after searching both the P&LE collection and the full online archives for "83400," "box" (car), etc. Did you view the hard copy photos there in Pittsburgh and those photos aren't yet online, or am I searching the wrong site? Any URL to suggest?
