One thought on “PAs on parade

  1. Of the four surviving PAs in North America, two are in the U.S. One is owned by famed engineer Doyle McCormack and is being restored, in Nickel Plate colors, at the Oregon Rail Heritage Center in Portland, Ore. The other is being restored to its original Santa Fe warbonnet scheme at the Museum of the American Railroad in Frisco, Texas.

    The other two ex-ATSF PAs are preserved in Puebla, Mexico. A fifth PA, once used on the broad-gauge Paulista Railway in Brazil, is reportedly still in existence.
