SOU “Original 1977” is one of the truly classic schemes for these “rolling billboard” cars, complete with the “Southern Gives A Green Light To Innovations” logo. This stunningly accurate Southern Railway paint job is an exercise in details: a beautiful carbody freight car brown with the green “dot” inside the O of Southern and the “WSP” Woodhaven Stamping Plant code listing prominently displayed on the carbody. Like all 86’ auto parts cars these were pooled cars and ran on designated auto part routes – check out the photo on our website of one of these cars on DRGW in Colorado! This 1977-built Greenville example features body-mounted brake rigging hanging down from the underframe and 100-Ton trucks with rotating Brenco-6 roller bearing caps, just like the prototype. These beauties are available with four road numbers!
