PRR and UP single window coach

Looking for a little help.  Need images of a PRR Tuscan coach and a UP Yellow single window coach.  Starting to fill out a production schedule for this summer and need some background info.  So far most of the UP's that wern't harrimans are duel windows...

Cheers

Joe

*Putting on my SPF hat* I labored for years under the misconception that the PRR class P54 (from whence the electric MP54s came to be) were single window coaches...but I've since learned that they are very subtly double windows.

The MP54s are not paired window coaches, their windows are grouped in three's.  This can be seen in the picture below (from the North East Rails website)...

Joe,

It might just be that these two roads didn't have single window coaches.  :o

Maybe a SPF or Uncle Pete Fan (UPF?) can comment.

As far as I know the Pennsy didn't have a major class of single window steel coaches.  But with Pennsy being what it was I can't swear there wasn't a one-off somewhere.

Branchline produced their HO single window coach model in about two dozen different roadnames.
That should be enough to keep you busy for a while.

Sadly the most adamant proponent of a single window coach is no longer with us.    :(

As for me, I’d be in for a single-pane window Jackson & Sharp truss rod coach in HOn3, but something tells me that’s not gonna happen!

But you did the paired window that has less prototypes?

I for one am anxiously awaiting the single-window coach. I'm hoping for plain green paint so I can letter them for NKP.  I'll also be happy to buy some NH cars.  I won't buy and UP cars or PRR cars though.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Do a reverse foobie. Do a proper PRR MP54 coach, label it as a single window coach and then slap whatever road name you want to on it.   :trollface:

Problem solved.  :D

Never argue with idiots; they'll drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Ya know, Joe is joking. :D

There is at least one thread on railwire with a gazillion roadname suggestions for single window coaches (but no PRR/UP).  :trollface:

Sorry Joe, this is all very confusing.  I was under the impression that the N Scale Manufacturers Assoc based all passenger car decisions since 2014 or 15 on the New Haven. I figured since the NH had some, that we would be good to go.

In keeping with the conversation the other day with another manufacturer- if you do them in Erie 2-tone green, I guarantee I will buy 2, and if you do them in L&N dark blue, I will buy another 2.  Or, alternately, if they come out in undec, I will buy 4 and paint them myself.  Unless I buy the PRR and UP ones if they go on sale because they ain't prototypical, and strip the paint.

  A decade to research and you didn't fact check the HO guys posting stuff all over your facebook page?
