Re: Five US Army Troop Cars
FWIW there was a POW camp just north of Salt Lake City. German soldiers were shipped in from eastern ports. I have a vague recollection there were actual POW cars but I do not know if they were old Pullmans or these “War Emergency Pullmans”.
So 2 questions: Were there POW cars in the style shown in the photo? Given luxury accommodations weren’t high on the list of POW service would a POW load move in a freight train – a different sort of livestock load or as a passenger train?
