On page 65 of the book Great Trains of North America, there is a picture of
the 1613 in UP colors with N&W lettering. The caption is wrong - it says it
was taken in 1961 - and it is credited to a J. K. Hayward. This picture is
the only reason I have kept this book.

According to the caption on this

pretend to be an expert on this car; thank goodness for references, both hard
copy and on line!

Dave; Thanks for your correction. I am glad to know that the former AHM (now
IHC) P-S dome is an accurate model of the former UP/Wabash cars. I was
planning to paint mine blue and number it 1602, but will now do 1613. Do you know
if the car ever ran on the N&W in UP colors with N&W lettering ala the
sleeper "National Colors".? Thanks again. Dan
