THANKS FOR THE FOLLOWING UPDATED INFO PROVIDED BY ROGER:

The Columbia, TN, standard cupola caboose was built as ACL 0656, became SCL 0656 when the ACL & SAL merged, and became SBD 20656 when the SCL was merged with the L&N & several smaller roads to become the Seaboard System. The SBD was in turn absorbed into CSX but this car was never relettered to CSX 20656. On wide or extended vision cabooses the cupola is wider than the car body and extends down both side for a foot or two.
