Any left or preserved?

IIRC that was navy blue.

The cars are undoubtedly long past use in revenue service, as the Southern took over about 50 years ago. Might be an interesting paint scheme to replicate somewhere, though.

I think he's talking about the silver oval boxcars, which were black.

I recall it said, "Wrong Way" on the opposite side.

In retrospect it should have said "IC, Frisco, SAL - anybody but Southern" on the other side.

Thank you, Ray. Don't know why I thought those were blue. I do remember the cars, but I think I saw only one of them as recently as the 1970s.

If I remember, Lionel made them brown just to add to the confusion.

Allways good to see intrest in the Central of Georgia. My paycheck at the bottom says Central of Georgia and Norfolk Southern at the top.
