Anybody have a Pennsy or Reading Silverliner made by NJ brass?

I have some questions, looking for opinions, etc.

I don't know anyone who has one at this moment.

I know a number of folks who own them, and never run them. Some of them don't even have layouts to run them on.

And despite wanting a few sets of my own to actually run, I've never found any for sale, in the last 15 years of looking.

This has actually been a contributing factor in my choice to change scales last year.
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.

Wow.  There weren't that many sets made.

Is there any way you can put me in touch with these people?
