I looked through my photo and slide collection of the ex-Wabash cars,
(which is not extensive), and only found the same cars you listed as
painted Armour Yellow.

My *guess* is the cars you listed were sufficient for whatever pool
arrangement N&W had with UP after the Wabash merger, although there may
have been one or two more.

Glad you are chasing this down.  Let  us know what you find out!
