locked Iding Repair Shops

Anyone have knowledge of how Southern repair shops were identified on freight cars during the steam-diesel era?  Say, 1946 to 1953.  I saw  a HO boxcar with the the letter N-48/  Which shoop would htat be.  How would Costner yard shops be identified on a hopper?

Thanks,

These are the Southern system shops which I have listed; however it probably pays to note that freight cars were reweighed off line from time to time (for example when a car was repaired at another company's shops), so it would not be unusual to see reweigh data from other companies shops as well.
