Re: USRA gondola in 1950's

The C of G had USRA clones in the number series 16551-16625 that show in the 1954 freight equipment diagrams. These cars were originally numbered 17001-17200. They were rebuilt with steel siding between 1939 -1940 and the sides lowered between 1934 - 1936. Todd Horton

Hi Larry,

I did the same thing a couple of years ago, but included "close clones". My findings through the 1950s include:
