Cocoa Beach January 2019 Shake 'N Take-Southern boxcar (272500-272999)


O Fenton Wells
 

We are getting down to the wire and still have not been able to locate but 4 photos of this Southern boxcar (272500-272999).  I've checked the usual sources, Bob's photos, Ted Culotta and other Southern fans but haven't been able to come up with anything.  If anyone has a photo they would share or knows of someone who might  I'd certainly be grateful.  Yes I googled as well, no joy.  I'm beginning to believe that these cars were very bashful and photo shy!!!
Thanking anyone in advance,
Fenton

Hi Fenton, 

A partial end shot of Southern 272617 appears in Ferrell's "Slow Trains Down South, vol 1", p 269.
A photo of Southern 272993 in a train appears in Staufer's "B&O Power", p 138.
A builder's photo of Southern 272999 appears in the '43 Car Builders' Cyc; it's reprinted in TS CYC 17, p 139.
The roof of Southern 272999 is shown in an ad in the '43 Cyc; it's reprinted in TS CYC 75, p 401. This is a different picture from the one just mentioned.

How similar are these to Southern 272000-272499? I see they share an ORER listing.

Best regards,

Al Brown, Melbourne, Fla.

Al, they are right on.  Don't have those books.  If you could scan them and email them I would greatly appreciate your help.  
Looking forward to seeing you in Cocoa
and happy new year
Fenton
