Prototype

Thirty-one 4-Bedroom, 4-Compartment, 2-Drawing Room sleepers were ordered by the Pullman Company in 1941.  18 of these cars were assigned to the Overland Route (C&NW-UP-SP) as part of lot 6668.  After their construction in March and April of 1942, two went to the Southern Pacific, four to the Chicago & North Western, and twelve to the Union Pacific in two-tone gray. They rode on 41-HR trucks with clasp brakes originally.  Later all UP cars were repainted in the road’s Armour Yellow and Harbor Mist Gray.
