City of Los Angeles, 16th Train, 1950
Budd was given an order from UP for 50 sleepers for delivery in 1950. These cars were configured with 10 roomettes and 6 bedrooms. It was the largest single-type passenger order and the first from Budd. The cars were given names in the "Pacific" series. When delivered, some cars had the two-tone grey "Overland" paint scheme and some the Streamliner Yellow paint scheme; 25 cars of each color. To further complicate things each exterior color had two different interior color schemes; 12-13 of each exterior color group had a "Group 1" interior color scheme and the rest had the "Group 2" interior color scheme (all according to the PCL list on Yahoo). Pacific Island belonged to the Group 2 (and incidentally was delivered in the Streamliner yellow scheme from the beginning). All cars did eventually get the Streamliner Yellow scheme.
The cars became very popular with the traveling public, and UP used them not only on the "City" trains but all over the system. At the end of the UP passenger era, all remaining cars were taken over by Amtrak.
Union Pacific has retained one car, the Cabarton. It has been rebuilt to a "crew sleeper" for use in their executive train. There are a couple of cars in private ownership as well, one of which is the Pacific Sands, owned by Pullman Adventures and based at the Los Angeles Union Station (LAUPT).
The car from the COLA 16th train, the "Pacific Island" is still in use. It now has the name Mount Vernon and has a heavily modified interior.
The two interior color schemes were as follows:
The car in the COLA 16th train was the "Pacific Island", later given number 1423.
I have the Walthers model of this car. This model has received very good reviews and I believe it will be a nice model for the train. It is ready to go after coupler and weight checks. The trucks will have to get a new coat of paint, since they should be grey for this time frame.
 The truck designation 41-CUD-11 is used in some Pullman records. This is believed to be the same as the 41-CUDO-11 truck. The possible explanation is that Pullman erroneously recorded the truck as CUD but later corrected it to CUDO.
