locked Sn3 7-58

I saw a K4 decal for the twin hoppers.  On it is the above lettering.  Sn3 and the date.  Also that it was built in 1937.  I'm assuming that this Sn refers to either a repaint or a later shopping date.  But I'm unfamiliar with Sn3?

Was this a shop on the old Southern and if so, where was it?  My best guess is Spartanburg, South Carolina.  I do know back then most hopper work was done at the Costner Shops in Knoxville.  Was Spartanburg a repaint shop?
