Yes Eric it affected the Southern SU boxcars and vent cars as well, Although some of the pulp wood racks made from SU boxcars were upgraded with AB brake systems

Here are some L&N ventilated boxcar quantities to fill in a few years in between Ray’s info.
1943 – 2,096 cars
1951 – 992 cars
1953 – 37 cars
I suspect the pending K brake ban of January 1, 1954 affected the fleet numbers after 1950.
4,347 VMs on the roster in 1930 (5th largest fleet), four still on the roster in 1962.
