From the booklet “California,” of which text is reproduced in a post below.

Leg-rest coaches were the norm on Chicago-California trains. On Union Pacific, only its dome coaches were carpeted and were also otherwise much more striking in decor. This picture is from the fleet of flattop coaches.  The same coaches ran interchangeably on all of the Cities trains and on the Challenger.
