I don’t know about the center sill but I do remember seeing the initial & number stamped on the lower  side of the car body around the hand rails. Don’t remember if it was the ‘A’ end or ‘B’ End of the car though.

Subject: [SouthernRailway] Stamped car numbers?

 

Does anyone know if the Southern used metal dies to stamp a car’s road number on its center sill?

 

The question is to try to determine a car’s original number so it can be painted and numbered correctly.
