N.S.Ry. cupola caboosesgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread
Does any evidence exist as to whether or not any of the N.S.Ry. steel cupola cabooses ever received Southern paint after the merger in 1974?

I'm not sure if any got Southern paint or not, but they were sold to other roads. NS #374 to DT&I #150, NS #372 to DT&I #151, NS #366 to DT&I #152, and NS #371 to DT&I #153. NS #368 is in Savannah,Ga. lettered as Central of Georgia X-368, and at least two cabs were sold to the Angiers, Winslow, and Western RR, and are now numbered #112 and #113. There's a photo of these on George Elwoods Fallen Flag site.

I just found my slide of AW&W #113. It is believed to be ex-NS Rwy #367. FWIW...

According to the information in the "Southern Railway Color GuideTo Freight and Passenger Equipment" a NS caboose was painted in the Southern colors with a side door and asinged to the MW department. It's road # is 910808. Heres some more food for thought. The New Hope Valley Railroad has a wooden center coupla NS caboose and the "North Carolina Transportation Museum" has a bay window caboose in the NS colors.

Robert--that particular MOW cab was actually converted from a boxcar and was not one of their cupola cabs. There are a couple photos of it in the caboose section of the photo gallery--Larry
