Digerness1-409 purports to be a side view drawing of DSP&P chaircar #63, but is not. First, the windows are paired as on the Plan 73 Pullman cars (South Park, Bonanza & San Juan), which those on the car in the photo above certainly are not. And second, the 41'-9" length of the scale drawing doesn't reconcile with any C&S passenger car, let alone coach #63. The drawing purports to be at a scale of 3/16' = 1' but appears to have been stretched laterally to fill the page (or shrunk vertically).
