Here are a couple images of a POW train arriving in Sturgeon Bay, WI in July 1945. The train includes (in other high-res images):

CB&Q 40' steel boxcar
Pullman Hollywood Beach (assuming for guards)
GM&O 215 coach
CB&Q 4476 coach (there appears to be 3 identical Q clerestory-roof coaches following this car, with another 3 similar cars visible at the end of the train)
