Parlor Car Enterprises Railroad Chrome Postcard Checklist

 Another very nice and modestly sized series by the late Henry C. Butz of Netcong, New Jersey.  The exact number of postcards in the series is yet to be determined but appears to be perhaps no more than 100.  The emphasis of the series is on eastern railroad operations.  Action photography predominates although there are a couple of roster-style shots and a couple of in-service urban streetcars.  Coverage dates from the mid-1960s through circa. 1990.

Postcards are regular sized on quality card stock and are printed in Canada.  All are numbered using the prefix PCE for Parlor Car Enterprises.  All images are identified as to photographer and production date; some later images credit Aron Blum rather than Henry Butz.  Their relationship, if any, is unknown to me.  All postcards in the series are now out of print but may frequently be found on-line on EBAY, BIDSTART or similar services (although not usually identified by series) or at postcard shows.  Names of railroads and other key words from my checklist should assist in searching.
