RE: AMS J&S coach windows

Hi L,

Thank you.

I discovered Herbert Danneman's RG NG Varnish in my library and there are old shots of #284 and many other coaches including the one you mentioned with the visible slots. #286 is shown with fabric shades pulled halfway down in Juli 1937. Even #272 (closed vestibules for the San Juan) shows those shades after the modernization in 1937. Old business cars are shown with wooden shades. Parlor car Alamosa had fabric shades plus extra curtains.

Too bad, there is not a single color photo in the book.

RE: AMS J&S coach windows

Great! So it must have been a kind of brown. These are exactly the shades used in the other cars.

BTW: The oil or perhaps modernized electric lamps were beautiful.

Thanks for your support.
