Re: SP Overnight service

Thanks Paul.

Not to mention the large number of standard 40ft box cars used
in LCL service. I suspect that SP painted so many cars for the
"Overnight" service to protect the uniform appearance of those
trains more than anything else -- the cars were completely
ordinary for the most part, although some B-50-15/16 cars had
side ladders by the doors.

Tim,
Your count is right for the B-50-24's, but do not forget there were a
number of B-50-15 &16's also in this service. Particularly the B-50-16's
in the late 40's.
