According to Al's web site these cars ran until the late 1959. *10453 9000
SERIES WITH 1948 LETTERING
ERAS: 40s 50s DS_BOX
MODELS: cars repainted beginning in 1948 and
running to the last in 1959.

Does anyone know how many were left roaming the rails in 1957, and not
assigned to captive service or in a dead line. I think it would be neat
to
add to my 1957 layout but wonder how common it would be.
