Mid-sixties lettering for S&A, CofG, G & F

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I was wondering if the boxcars of the subsidiaries CofG, G&F, and S&A carried billboard lettering in a similar font to the SOUTHERN for an interim period in the sixties similar to what happened with cabooses and locomotives. This would have been a very narrow time frame, and all I ever photographed were freshly refurbished Southern "Green Light" boxcars with tiny ownership initials or the original paint schemes. (Of course, I don't think we have decals available to model this short-lived variations).
