The 16 coaches edbear mentioned above were 56-seat chair cars with 10-seat smoking lounges.
"The cars were delivered (eight to each railroad) in June and July of 1947 from the Osgood Bradly works of P-S at Worcester, Mass. as lot 6778, drawing W-46352...the pier panels painted a dark green and unpainted stainless steel roofs....The B&M cars were sold to the WABASH in 1957....All of the MEC cars were sold to the MISSOURI PACIFIC in 1960 and...in 1969, all were sold with most going to Mexico." (from The Official Pullman-Standard Library, Vol. 10, page 121.)
All eight of the B&M cars were named after birds. The eight MEC cars had New England Native American tribal names such as PASSAMAQUODDY.
Here is a picture of one of them, B&M # 015, CHICKADEE. Obviously, the pier panels were repainted and the cars were renumbered at some time after delivery.
Hope this helps.
