MidSouth Rail Corporation (MSRC) “Gray Repaint 1989+” is our second example of an IC Centralia Wide Vision caboose that has found its way to an ICG spin-off railroad. The MidSouth Rail Corporation started operation in 1986, taking over several hundred miles of ex-ICG lines in Mississippi and Louisiana. The MidSouth rostered a few ex-ICG cabooses. Our example was repainted by MidSouth into a beautiful gray scheme with a green stripe and tall MIDSOUTH graphics. This MSRC caboose survived the ICG era with its body windows intact but did have its end marker lights plated over. This is a Pullman roof ex-IC car, so it also has all the underframe features to match these 1972 builds, including the IC style battery box. Each piece of lettering is carefully reproduced on this caboose, from the accurate COTS panel data to the “NO. 2 DIESEL FUEL” lettering on the A-end. Finally, an accurate caboose to put behind those MSRC Geeps!
