The question does not have a precise answer because the change would have had to occur over time.  When did Southern executives decide to change the color?  About 1953-4.  When did the last of Southern flat cars with black disappear off the rails?  Probably not till after the merger with the N&W in 1982 (Kinkead book shows black Southern freight cars in Roman lettering in the 70's). New built cars after 1960 at least are going to be Southern freight car red.  Photos are your best friend.
