Don, did you know SAL 9028 is parked out in the weeds at SERM?
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of it and don't know how
it is for photos.

John, do you have a larger format image you could post in the
files section?
I would like to forward it to the good folks at SERM and maybe
plant an idea
for a restoration. The car's appearance has not been attended to
since it
was donated and most of the paint and lettering is weathered away.

Off the top of my pointy little head, the A-1s were 9011-9060
and were
built in 1937 by SAL (Jacksonville) from G-6 low-side composite

This would be a neat little modeling project. I'm sure we could
find sides
that would work, and the ends were 4/5 dreadnaught. Murphy roof.
You could
splice the decals from Ted Culotta's SAL box car decal set.
Hope this helps!

Thank you John. I wish there had been a car number in the view.
Could you
tell me what the numbers were for these cars? My
Seaboard info is limited. What few hobby dollars I've had has gone
Central of Georgia photos and such. I'm trying to branch out.
Also, could you point me to a photo that would show me what the
outside of
this type car looks like? Off list, perhaps. I'm at
Thanks again, John
