The Seaboard owned a total of 56 units at the end of 1965.R/N 1900- 1929 and 1954-1979.The P 111 is correct for the 1929,with two 48 inch fans.These units were Pullman green,light yellow(not cream) with orange stripes.The Proto units are correct. These units were built in 1955,56,57 and 59.Long after the "Citrus" scheme was cancled on new units.
