Re: MTL sleeper designation
Glad I could help.
I wouldn't worry too much about the F7. In researching one of my projects: the "City of San Francisco" I found that about the only time the COSF F3 loco was used was for publicity photos. Otherwise SP's motive power was GPs F7s, whatever they could find.

I would like to name the cars with appropriate names as an old MicroScale N scale decal instruction sheet gives names for various sleeper configurations. According to that sheet, the GS 6-6-4 sleepers were Golden Valley, Sea, Plain, Cloud, Creek and Canyon. That should be more than enough to make a nice looking train even if it is not prototypical.
