Which folio Earl?
As built they had 2-1 seating, the ones that survived were indeed rebilt with seating similar to the offical "Parlor Cars" by the 1920's.
I have seen pictures of 401 in 1937 (see CRA #25, p214) in which the seats look like individual chairs, non-reclining, with frames, at least on the arns & back, made of wicker work.
In short, these cars wre heavily rebuilt. And, as I mentiioned above, parlor cars Camp Bird and Pagosa (until rebuilt into Chama and 2nd Durango, AFAIK) had Pullman type seats, apparently with a two person seat sold for one occupant.
