Entire car consists of duplex roomettes, 24 in all.  Names start with letter I, for example Irondale.

The train has just left a siding called "Wynd".  That was an old Jasper joke.  "Such and such" a train  is just passing Wynd.

It's tough to get a good shot from the outside of a curve without having some height, but you have excelled here, Bob.  Very nice!

I'm a big fan of your B&W work, but these colour shots are terrific. A nice corporate image.

The I cars at the end of the Super were used for dining car crew sleeping accommodation.

And 6 wheel trucks. Were they considered extra heavy?

I believe that had more to do with CN trying to standardize parts and equipment in the late 1940s. They wanted the same trucks under all their heavy and lightweight passenger cars
