    Were these cars ever painted blue and white and used in Meteor service?

    Thanks,

    Does anyone have a copy of an Art Johnson photo of 773, 774, or 775 as used on the Will Rogers? Please scan and e mail it to me. Tnx, Doug

    I think it has been well-established that there were never any Blue & White Pullman cars, but was there any effort made to keep otherwise all B&W consists together on any trains other than the Meteor and the Firefly? There were certainly many more cars painted than were needed for those two trains.

    Gordon--In the "St. Louis Glory" video (from Herron, I believe) several Frisco trains from the late 40's just have the b/w cars mixed in--a coach here, a baggage there etc. Same with all the still photos I've seen. I just think there weren't enough of them to have dependable full consists. My opinion.
