Did any of the ATSF box cars lettered for The Scout, ever have the Ship
and Travel slogan replace the system map after 1947? I know that
sometime in early 1954 the The Scout scheme was replace with the San
Francisco Chief scheme.
No. The Scout slogan was dropped in 1947 when the other slogans were
revised and the system maps were replaced by "Ship and Travel..." The
"Texas Chief" slogan was added in 1948 and the "San Francisco Chief" in
1954.
