I just received my 2020Q4 TIES. It was very well done. Kudos to those who take the time to produce these articles.
I now have excuses to run 30-car silversides trains.
In any case, I had a question about the S&A caboose shown on page 23. When did this NE-style caboose get repainted from the (White and/or Off-White) to SOU red/yellow?

I might as well ask - Would the colors match S&A 251 on page 22? Looking at Sam McCall's website, it looks like my initial thoughts are correct: http://hosam.com/roads/sa.html

The image archive also has an interesting photo of X-255. When did it get its windows plated over and repainted into Southern? These look like neat projects for way down the road.
