Passenger Cars : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I recently purchaced an IHC Pacific 4-6-2 Locomotive (HO Scale) It has the passenger train paint scheme of the era.The problem I have is that I cannot find any passenger cars for this Loco.Could you please tell me what type of cars were used (I understaand that the Pacifics were used from the early 1900's until 1953) while the Pacifics were in service.I would also need to know the color scheme used.I hope to be able to custom make some passenger cars for this train.Any information is welcome. Thanx in advance -David

Okay so I didn't read all the other questions..i soon found that I have the same problem as someone else which is I own a model of a paint scheme that probraably never existed.I still need to know what the passenger car paint scheme of the era was..i suppose i will need to repaint the model and will probrably do it to look like the #1504 that is on display at the Prime Osborn convention center in downtown Jacksonville,Fl...which brings me to another question..was the 1504 used as a passenger locomotive?
