    Can anyone answer these 2 questions:

    Did UP use the yellow passenger cars with steam locomotives?

    And, if so, what steam locomotives (other than the Zepher) did they use with those passenger cars?

    UP steam on yellow passenger trains

    Yes UP did pull armour yellow pass equip with steam. Primary steam
    power for these trains were FEF-1s,2s and 3s Numbers 800 to 844. They also used 7000 series MT 73's and 4-6-6-4 Challengers.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "the Zephyr", since that's neither a UP train nor a steam locomotive.
