In January of 1984, the Norfolk Southern Corporation began repainting Southern Railway Pullman-Standard 5277 “Waffle” Boxcars in a new paint scheme. The Southern Railway called this the “Europa” paint scheme. If you model post-1984, this paint scheme would look great interspersed among our other Southern waffle boxcars!
