Building upon the success of their iconic Daylight trains, the Southern Pacific introduced a special nocturnal train that operated between Los Angeles and San Francisco/Oakland. While the Daylight name and vibrant paint scheme were not suitable for a nighttime service, the Lark emerged in an elegant two-tone gray livery. This train quickly became a hit, with businessmen flocking to enjoy comfortable and efficient overnight trips. The consist we present here represents the typical configuration of the train in the early 1950s, featuring a squared-off observation car and Southern Pacific letter boards in place of Pullman. To replicate the articulated car on the prototype, a two-unit dining car is included. In the mid-1950s, it became common to spot cars in various SP liveries, including Daylight-painted lounge cars and Union Pacific-painted run-through cars from the "City" trains. During the 1940s and early 1950s, GS-class locomotives adorned in Daylight paint were the standard power, but as the transition to diesels occurred, E7s and PA's took over. Although the Southern Pacific never painted locomotives to match the Lark, we offer a special fantasy GS-2 model for those seeking a more consistent consist.
