Express Boxcar ?

A Google search took me to the OGR Forum, where someone pointed out that
per the NWHS web site, N&W had converted some B-8 boxcars to express
service. If you look closely at the end corrugations of the first car, it screams
"Pullman PS-1" at you, i.e. B-8. However, a quick look through my
reference materials yielded no details, listing of cars converted, or installation
of passenger air brake systems. So, that's about all I can contribute -
hopefully others have more information.

Can someone enlighten me as to what class of box car is seen in the
following photo behind the K1 locomotive?


What color they may they have been painted?
