"Pocahontas" consist ?

I assume the time period is around 1960-65. The consist would vary a bit
from day to day and place. It would also vary a bit by whether the train
is eastbound or westbound. At Lynchburg in the early 1960's a typical
consist westbound might be:

1 Express
3 passenger
1 diner
1 lounge
1 Pullman

Eastbound would have 2 additional mail/express cars.

By 1962 or so the lounge was gone.

On Sunday and days around college holidays, the number of passenger cars
could increase up to 5 or so.

A postcard view shows a GP-9 powered "Pocahontas" at a station
stop. Unfortunately for me only the front end of the train is shown,
not the consist. Would some kind modeler clue me in regarding a typical
"Pocahontas" consist during that time period ?

I have kit bashed a Norfolk and Weatern GP-9 from a shell and
dynamic brake blisters won on ebay added to the frame and motors of a
Williams Norfolk Southern GP-9 (I model BEFORE the Norfolk Southern was
born) to come up with a good approximation of the motive power and would
like to add the correct consist behind it.

Thanks in advance for your kind response.

P S Anyone need a fully trimmed Norfolk Southern GP-9 shell ?
