Caboose lettering : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

Folks--I am still working on cabooses and need to know when the shift from the small yellow lettering to the large white block lettering took place. The MicorScale decal sheet indicates the large white lettering was post-1960. Did the change take place in 1960 or in 1962 when they switched from red to brown paint for the bodies?

Hi folks--I finally am going to answer my self. I found that the change was around 1959--most references to the new wite lettering say post-1959.
