I don't know about the Reading MU car, but the black GG1 is well known because it's the original GG1, 4800.  
The musuem says that people come from all over the world and ask where "Old Rivets" is

Hi All,
 
Here we go again. Old Rivets probably is not black, but Brunswick Green. She should also have her cats whiskers, the five gold stripes. I believe # 4935 is also there, somewhere near # 4800, old Rivets. Last I heard she was also in Brunswick Green.

From what I've heard, 4800 needs to be cleaned out or something like that before it is repainted and put back on display.
4935 is right next to 4800, but it's in the red car shop (see page 8 )
 
BTW, nice pictures, Colin. They look better than what I got

The Pennsy never had a color called Brunswick green, that's a term used incorrectly for years in the railfan press. The color is Dark Green Locomotive Enamel, or DGLE.
 
You are right, she ain't black but she ain't Brunswick Green, either.
 
I wonder where the Brunswick Green terminology started... It certainly is an error oft repeated in print.

If the WV above is for wide vision cupola, this caboose is  a BW (bay window).

3750 seems to have always been outside (along with 6755 and 757)
But the main reason that 3750, 6755, 460, and 7688 are outside is because they still have the asbestos, which they can hopefully remove soon

Actually they all have had their asbestos removed.   When it was abated, their jackets were in deplorable condition, and they were placed in storage.  (Asbestos was between the jacket and the boiler, so if you see the boiler, that means the asbestos is gone).
 
They are waiting for a grant that would allow the museum to buy and cut new jackets for all the locomotives.....this also gives them some time to display other items in the museum.

Personally, I think the most famous loco in the collection would either be 3750 or 1223. I've never even heard of old rivets ! I never even knew the RRMPA had more than one GG1!

Alright, I like the pictures you guys posted about the museum.  I was surprised that no cab shots were posted.  Also the museum is going to do a movement of equipment really soon.  The G5 will get turned and the GP-30 will get moved too.  I heard that 7002 may take the place of 1223 and 1223 take the place of 7002.  And in the forum I saw someone wanted to know what was under the cacoons.  Ones a boober cabbose, and ones a passenger coach.  Don't know exactly what is though.  Here are some pictures of inside the GP-30
