Northern Pacific passenger car question

Please see the link below, my question is does anyone know the number series for the third car from the left? It looks to be a full length heavyweight baggage.

Thanks.

Any NP heavyweight baggage cars I've seen have been in the 1500 series. I can't find any with all the lettering between the doors like that.
Typically they were (door) Northern (door) Pacific

Yes, thanks Jason, that is what I was looking for.

I had given up on the Fallen Flags site, many times received errors trying to access those images.
