    Can someone explain briefly what is the difference between a 10-1-2 and a 10-2-1 Pullman sleeper. The 10-2-1 is plan 4042, 4042B etc. and the 10-1-2 is plan 3585 and 2585. Reason I ask the Frisco in their records, referred to their "College" series of cars (Amherst, Drury, Smith, Trinity) which were plans 4042 and 4042B as "10-1-2's" ?? Do the two configurations look similar or was one plan developed from the other or what?? Inquiring minds want to know...

    Thanks, Tom

    The x595 cars (2585, 3585) are 10 Section - 1 Drawing Room - 2 Compartment sleepers while the 4042 and its subclasses are 10 Section - 2 Double Bedroom - 1 Drawing Room cars. Most of the 4042s were rebuilt from Plan 2411 16 Section and Plan 2585 10 Section - 1 Drawing Room - 2 Compartment cars.

    Good catch, Tom. Something that I think many of us would overlook. I'd presume, then, that the Frisco would have ended up with 10-1-2s rebuilt into the 10-2-1 configuration?

    The aisle sides are close enough for my modeling to use a Micro-Trains N scale 10-1-2 to model the Frisco "College" 10-2-1's.
