I supplied the information (Ray Smoot) and it is based on personal
observation. Glad it is helpful.

The answer below is quite helpful. Who supplied the information? Also,
is this based upon personal observation or is a passenger train consist
book from 1960-1965 available as its source?

Thanks again,

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.
