Okay, so we all know that most of the PA-1-3s were scrapped somewhere in Ohio. The PA-3 733 is now on the flatbed ( if anyone saw it) and is now heading to ohio for scrapping. It was seen at the Harrison Yard.

I saw (3) custom flatbeds Wed Oct 27th 2pm on Rt 80 West in Pa. around the Lock Haven area.

Very Good. BTW, what were the numbers of the cars ?
  by R36 Combine Coach
As of yesterday, 130 older PA1/PA2/PA3/PA4 cars have been scrapped. 217 PA5s are now on the property.

Older PA cars are being sent to Frontier Corp. in Ohio (which also scrapped Metro-North's M-1As, ACMUs and Comet I-As).

That flatbed photo above is the saddest sight this lifelong PATH fan has ever seen. Just as bad as seeing NYCTA's R-40's getting dumped into the ocean............... :(

I rode PATH today (June 14, 2011) and saw four trains of old cars. The consists were as follows;

33 - JSQ LCL -
1) 872-812-861-840-810-121-891

2) 856-120-801-888-858-808-862

3) 806-142-864-849-811-887-800

A fourth train was laid up on track 2 at 33 Street;


I guess that the PA-1A's are gone.
