locked Sou 550555

Here are two photos of Sou 550550. One is when the car was turned over to the Southern, the second photo is the only time I saw the car long after it was painted. The “in service” photo was taken in Mechanicsville, NY on 8-5-80 in a D&H train. 

Note the odd feature of the second photo….the car has a (much newer) “SOUTHERN” road name above the number. (SR and PRR did not follow the AAR standard..there is none on the as-built car.)
