Southern Pacific Sleeper Question

SP Modelers,
The 1954 Pennsy consist books show 2 SP cars 9037 and 9039 assigned to the Pennsylvania Limited.

I`m assuming these are 10-6 cars but what was the paint scheme on them in 1954?

So more than likely 2 tone gray but I'm still guessing they where smoothside 10-6s like the walthers model

How did you make that determination?

SP 9036-9039 were assigned to the San Francisco Overland: http://www.brasscarsides.com/pdf%20tech%20sheets/NPSP.551.pdf

A 1954 PRR timetable shows connecting through cars on the Pennsylvania Limited and the San Francisco Overland: http://streamlinermemories.info/PRR/PRR54-1TT.pdf

By 1954, those cars would have been in UP colors: http://cs.trains.com/ctr/f/3/t/198944.aspx

Based off that first link you provided in your previous post that said most overland cars where 2 tone gray.

Thanks for providing more info, so they are 10-6s in UP paint.

Thanks @Point353

Those cars were in two-tone gray at an earlier time, but by 1954 they would have been in the UP scheme, as shown above.
