Need some help on decyphering trust data
« on: February 23, 2012, 11:30:45 AM »

I finally acquired a hi-rez scan of a Penn Central boxcar where the trust data is semi-legible.  I've figured out most of the text by block-reading and knowing some of it in advance, but I can't make out the third line:



The text reads as:

UNITED STATE RAILWAY
LEASING COMPANY
_____   ______________
LESSOR
TITLE TO THIS CAR SUBJECT
TO DOCUMENTS RECEIVED
UNDER SECTION 20G OF
INTERSTATE COMMERCE ACT

The first word could be "NEW" but I have no idea what the second word is.  Looks as if it starts with "PLA".  Any help would be appreciated.

Whatever it is, it will refer to PC specifically somehow, as the Lessor of the car. I would surmise it's "PCA Pennsylvania Lines".
To "call a spade a spade" is to speak honestly and directly about a topic, specifically topics that others may avoid speaking about due to their sensitivity or embarrassing nature. The Oxford English Dictionary records a more forceful variant, "to call a spade a bloody shovel", attested since 1919.

PC is the lessee.

Duhr, I should have known that. Excuse me, I can't brain today, I have the dumb.
