South Georgia Railway boxcar #1601

I found this Whitcomb Locomotives ad in the April-July 1935 issue of BALDWIN LOCOMOTIVES magazine.  The South Georgia Ry. boxcar really caught my attention.  I don’t recall ever seeing a photo of a freight car from that road.   Anyone have other photos or information about this car or its sisters? Or any other South Georgia Ry. freight cars? 

 

Here are some web resources about the company:

I think Bill Welch would have loved this example from one of the lesser-known “y’all roads.”
