Due to constrained availability of information on car names, paint schemes, etc., I am modeling a JES train as of the 1957 refresh of the cars.

The paint scheme was pastel blue with dark blue lines and lettering...

The car names known to be: Raleigh, Syracuse, York, Hamburg, Shelby, Florence, Clearfield, Charleston, Charlotte, Danville, Elmira, Corning, and Binghamton. Stratesville, already known as car #1, was also on the train. [Passenger Car List] 

Photographic evidence also maps the CHARLESTON car to #11 and the CORNING to #13.

The 1957 train was known to run with 50 cars, including 14 "coaches," 34 flats (Warren & Mount Vernon), a box car and a stock car. I figure a good representation will be 20-22 cars, so I am shooting for seven "coaches," 14 flat cars, and a stock car.
