Note the repainted reporting marks and the mix of type used! According to the Official Register of Railway Equipment, this was the last PC H44 on the roster. All PC H42's had been repainted by the 1990s.

One of only two PRR H44s still in service in 1996! In HO scale you will have to custom paint the Atlas kit using Champ Decals set HC-657 and their data sheet. For N scale, this paint scheme comes predecorated on the Delaware Valley car.
