Thank you Tony.
What car class was that equivalent to on the SP?
Not clear to me. The UP S-40-6 cars were built in 1918, well after the Harriman Lines had dissociated, and I really can't say for sure if this UP class even corresponds exactly to an SP class. One would tend to think of SP's S-40-5, built in 1915-1917, but I'm sure details differ.
