Age of Steam SHOULD be commended, but not for the PA proposal. It is the Museum of the American Railroad that has the PA hulk.

No connection to JJJ's Age of Steam.

Thanks for the correction.

This is a mistake that can be made because for a longtime the collection was known as the "Age of Steam" when it was located at the Texas State Fair grounds from 1963 to 2006 when the name was changed. The move to Frisco, Texas, occurred in 2011-13.

From the website of Museum of the American Railroad:
Quote:
In 2006, the Age of Steam changed its name and identity to the Museum of the American Railroad. This was for several reasons: 1) the technology represented in the collection had extended beyond the age of steam – it included later, 20th Century examples of diesel and electric locomotives, along with newer post-WWII streamlined passenger cars; 2) the collection represented the high points of railroading on a nation-wide level; and, 3) the museum sought to be up to date and timely, rather than antiquarian
