Bill and Garth,
Thanks for the information from the ORERs.
Examining the photos, I can make out “NEW 2(?)-34, and the Mt. Vernon Car Mfg. Co. builder’s stencil to the right of the doors.

Cool car! I have an ORER listing from April 1951 which shows one boxar from what I presume is this series. It is South Georgia 1600, an XM: 40' 6" IL, 9' IW, 10' 2 1/4" IH, 12' 1" doors, 3739 cu ft, and 80000 capacity. Their only other cars at that time were two 41' flat cars, numbered 875 and 876, and a 35' 4" flat car numbered 877.
My 1958 ORER shows the line as a Southern-controlled shortline with no separate listing for equipment.
