Remarks & Notes 
Presenting Streamliner #26-and-a-half: Hoping for a unique photo opportunity, I packed this N-scale model of an NKP PA with the rest of my photo gear. I had tried a few times throughout the day to get a good comparison shot with NKP 190, but couldn't quite find the right angle to show them both off properly. With 190 parked at the museum depot, however, I finally found the right composition. Setting my model on the rail, I lined up the two PAs on my camera screen - and the result was my favorite photo of the whole event.
