A learned Southern source has indicated that Southern box cars were

However, given the size of the deliveries in 1941 (1500 cars) I would
be surprised if there were not members of this group still in their
original livery in 1950. Not as a rule, of course, but a not
insignificant number, too. These 1500 cars all had round cornered
ends, like the model that is shown with the decals on it.
