Remarks & Notes 
The only preserved/mostly unaltered (at the RR Museum of PA) Metroliner; snack-bar coach No. 860 is southbound at the now-closed Michaelsville Road crossing in Perryman. The snack-bar coaches (60 seats, with a food service counter) were built by GE and were designated by the Pennsylvania Railroad as their Class MPC85E5. The 860 can be seen in its current condition at Strasburg on this web site in photo No. 559382; the major difference being that the original Tomlinson coupler has been replaced by a standard tight-lock style. What I remember most about these cars in operation was their shrill two-chime horns, made by Leslie in Lyndhurst, NJ; their types S37X and S55X. Sometimes one or both of the horns weren't functioning properly, which made for a crazy wailing sound.
