SOO 15563 and Rock Island 5109 are in an unknown location in the late 1960's.

Nice. Thank you.
I saw plenty of Rock Island boxcars in my day.

Always liked rolling stock where trying to read the lettering wasn't like reading an 'eye chart' at the Dr.

When I worked at my home town station I loved looking at passing freight trains and seeing all the foreign heralds.  It was something that stayed with me until all the mergers left only 5 roads .  Now it is boring to look at the cars, especially those with just reporting markings.. A tip of the hat to  who first said  "it's all crap  now".
