Were these 1000 cars the extent of the aluminum oval paint scheme?
I have also read that this scheme only appeared on 50’ cars. Is the correct?

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.
