I remembered that I had a copy of "Journal of the West" for January
1992. The issue is devoted to railroad subjects and the cover has a
painting of DV #2. I got it from Gordon Chappel who had done the
article on the Death Valley.
He writes: "[The DV started with] a dozen steel ore hopper cars, siz
flats, two box cars, and a caboose, as well as the two leased Pacific
Coast Boraz Company water cars, three wooden gondolas and another flat."
Then later he continues: "The railroad added a second new
locomotive...in 1916, a caboose newly built by the Seattle Car and
Foundary company, a wooden, open-platform, clerestory-roofed coach of
unkown orgin, and miscellaneous tank and flat cars to handle incoming
and outgoing traffic."
In this article Chappell mentions only one coach.
