Frisco public timetable for August, 1951
Sooo, what about the through sleeping car in the Kansas City-Florida Special, shown as a 14-4 or a 10-6 streamlined sleeper. Whose 10-6? Frisco didn't have any.
Maybe that was a car furnished by one of the other participating roads?? FEC or SR?
At some point, I recall seeing photos of this train and they carried a Southern Pac. and Union Pac. equipment. Will have to go back and check this out.
I believe that this car was a SOUTHERN "River" series sleeper. My compadres who are Jacksonville Terminal fanatics and collectors tell me so.

The KC-Miami sleeper was supposedly a "seasonal" car, so its mention in an August PTT, seems a bit odd. It made its last run during the 1955 season.
Southern had a large fleet of Pullman-Standard 10-6 cars named in the River series and another batch named for Latin American countries (e.g., Venezuela) that interlined with the FEC. The 10-6 cars operating in the KC-Florida Special would almost certainly have been Southern cars. However, Southern also had several Valley series 14-4 cars which doubtless would have substituted at least occasionally.
