Bruce,

Yes the power cars were on standard gauge trucks and were swapped out with 5' gauge trucks when loaded on the ships. The standard gauge trucks were originally sent back to the factories building the power trains but at one point they were offered for sale to the SP&S. At the time the SP&S wasn't in need of extra cast steel trucks so they declined.
