In 1974, Southern took delivery of 70 ton, 5277 cubic foot boxcars from Pullman-Standard. Different from other cars of the IPD era, the Southern cars had a full set of "waffles"--stamped impressions into the car's side panels intended to accommodate lading equipment. Beginning with PS lot 9725, Southern Railway would eventually roster nearly 5,000 of these boxcars. Found anywhere, the Southern PS 50' Waffle boxcar is the epitome of a signature classic!
