SP Overland Limited in early 1920s


I'm looking for a typical consist for the Overland Limited on the Southern Pacific in the early 1920s - what would have been pulled by the SP 4-6-2 class P-8 locos across Nevada. The P-8s were built in 1921, and most of them saw initial service pulling trains between Sparks and Ogden.
