HELLO ALL

I am taking a break for Disney Railroads and trying to find the color that passenger cars were for the SP,LA&SL RR. I have Googled the SP,LA&SL RR and there are no photos that I have found. There are post cards on EBAY that show the Riverside viaduct but two show green cars and two show red to brown cars. Always a pain looking for colors in a black&white photo world. Any help would be appreciated.

WELL, I have a partial resolution.
Reading about the Mojave Desert rails gave me the Name of the top train on the line, the Los Angeles Limited.

http://mojavedesert.net/railroads/railroads-041.html

This lead to the Wikipedia article referencing the Los Angeles Limited as Pullman Green with black roofs and trucks and yellow lettering.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Angeles_Limited

I was hoping for something more unique but maybe I paint it an altered Tuscan red or a different green anyway just to be different.
