Re: Seaboard Air Line 'Railway' to 'Railroad'



Seaboard came out of receivership in 1946 during the post WWII boom.
They fell into recievership in 1929 when they got hit by the Florida
land bust and the Great Depression simultaneously.

Does anyone know when the Seaboard's changeover from 'Railway' to
'Railroad' occurred? I have a builder's photo of SAL 19799 from
with 'Railway' in the Heart logo. The July, 1947 ORER listing is
the Seaboard Air Line Railroad, so it occurred some time in between
those dates, I would assume. Also, what was the motivation for the
change - financial, like many other such changes?
