That makes perfect sense, though I wonder why most of the front-end cars did not have handrails. Could be the route they were used on required a lot of crew movement? It's an interesting mystery.

These cars were generally only used on the Santa Fe "Mixed" (aka Chili Line) train which implies freight cars and train crew effort.  The other D&RGW passenger trains were generally passenger only.  That's always been my understanding for these cars on that one route.
