locked Modeling SR Heavyweight Passenger Cars

Mike Burns

I've got two questions pertaining to modeling Southern passenger cars. 1) When did Southern start applying horizontal gold stripe to the bottoms of Pullman green passenger cars and 2) when did Southern start using silver/stainless steel doors on head end cars? I'm modeling a mid to late 1950's Sou. Rwy. secondary train and would like to know how to proceed on these points. Thanks, Mike BurnsĀ
