Fenton asked, “ when did the Soo Line go to the large block lettering?”
In the “Soo Line Freight Equipment and Cabooses” book by Ken Soroos it states, “the billboard Soo Line lettering was first introduced on new box cars in 1951.”  The large block lettering began with a slant in the middle bar of the  “S” in Soo and I believe  it became straight across in 1959.
