The WP Zephyrettes were RDC-2's.   The SP #10 is the more common RDC-1 type, all "chair" car in Espee terms.  The RDC-2 is a "combine" style with baggage area at the forward end.  There were also RDC-3's and RDC-4's (all baggage or with RPO).  These types were uncommon, but ran in Canada into the late 1970's.

Hope that helps.

No Zephyrettes were Western Pacific, this bud car was never owned by the WP.
