Tiburon Idler Flat Cars?

Does anyone know what the car numbers were on the 3 idler flat cars that were used to switch the car floats in and out of Tiburon? I know they were silver with black stripes and lettered NWP MW but I can't make out the numbers of any of the cars. Thanks for any assistance.See More
