What does this have to do with the Ga RR cars?  The C of G got two separate lots of PS-1's with 9' doors in 54' and 56'

This seemed somewhat germane.

The Central of Georgia has ordered 500 50-ft, 9-ft-door box cars from Pullman-Standard, for anticipated delivery in March 1956, at an estimated cost of nearly $3.5 million. The cars will be painted with the aluminum oval design, on a black background, developed for the 500 box cars which the CofG purchased from Pullman last year.  Copied from the August 8, 1955, RAILWAY AGE, page 12.
