They run these and the TBOX 'equivalents' on quite a few mixed freights on both the NS (ex-Southern) and CSX lines in Memphis.  Makes me nostalgic to see them.
 
Many trains also have at least one Southern boxcar ("Serves the South" or "Gives a Green Light to Innovation") complete with SOU reporting marks.  Even more nostalgic.
