All Class K2 and K2a locomotives were steamlined and modernized 
beginning February 5, 1945 as the locomotives came in for Classified 
repairs and was completed at an overall cost of $1,148,079.07 on 
October 8, 1946.

I will not even go into the color debate!

There were two PG Class coaches, No. 1600 and 1601, Class BP1 46 seat 
combines, Nos. 620-629 were also not air conditioned, BPe combines, 
Nos. 601,603 and 605 all reflect on my list as non air conditioned 
equipment equipped with coal stoves for branch line service. I am sure 
someone else can come up with some additional numbers. Which, of 
course, depends, on the era.
