Re: mortuary trains

My apologies to Mike in advance because although the era matches STMFC the remains were emphatically not Freight, but Passenger, Deceased.
 However, in the interests of knowledge, to learn about the US Army mortuary cars get the current (Spring-Summer) issue of Railroad History magazine.  It has a 20 page article.  There was also a thread several years ago on the Yahoo Passenger Car List.
