Southern Railway Motor Cars and SR Purchase Orders : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

Does anyone know of any possible resources to locate the history of motor cars used on the Southern? I am looking for lists that detail assignments of where cars were stationed. I am a current NARCOA member and own 4 former Southern Speeders, however there is no way that I know of to find any more history than what I have now. I have purchased builder's cards from Fairmont, and noticed that Southern had their purchase order number on them, and am wondering if any records pertaining to purchases might still be around. If so, would it be possible to find them and use it as a source? Just a few thoughts that I thought I would inquire about among fellow SR enthusiasts. If anyone is interested in history of SR motor cars, let me know, I have been working on a few things to try to start compiling some history and information on them. Also if anyone has any, or knows of any photos, I'd like to share!
