locked Margin Notes!

Organizing the SRHA Southern Presidents' files is a bit more complex because so many memos and letters include comments or responses written on the original or copy. In pre Xerox days, the original would be passed around and might make its way back to the sender with multiple margin notes. (DWB could fill up every square inch on a memo with margin notes.)

Here is an example from June 26, 1970 discussing what to do with baggage cars after the PO stopped RPO service between Charlotte and Washington. (The cars appear to all be baggage (mail storage) rather than RPOs.

In the middle of all that I saw a reference to 4061 the car that became the long time Steam program commissary car for most of Southern's excursions until the dismal swamp wreck ended it's service life, crunch!
