1917 (May) built by Pullman, Lot # 4494, Plan # 2411C. As built, cars were built of heavyweight steel,  were non-airconditioned, rode on 6 wheel trucks and the electrical system was 32 Volts.

note 1; In 1950 the Pullman Company assigned "Pullman Car Codes" to all Pullman operated sleeping and parlour cars. These numbers were assigned to the cars "alphabetically", mixing heavyweight with lightweight equipment. I use the Pullman Company "Descriptive List of Cars", dated March 1961, guessing or assuming some of the Car Codes for cars off the roster, when this list was published.
note 2; Before the computer age, Pullman had a "Diagram" for each style or configuration of sleeping, tourist or parlour car operated in the U.S.A, Canada or Mexico. This diagram, would allow the agent to enter the name of the passenger in their assigned space. It also displayed the location on the car, where the space was located, as well as adjoining doors, or larger sized berths. Diagrams are displayed in the Pullman Company "Descriptive List of Cars", dated March 1961
note 3; some car names or numbers may have a Roman Numeral (ii, v, x, etc) after it. That is, I have more than one car of that name or number in my database, listed to that railroad. However, it may be  a major rebuild, where the same name has been re-assigned.
