Re: Hoppers?

Tony, yes gons were used by roads traversing the mid-west, to haul coal. The
CB&Q is one road that liked gons for this service. While I have not checked
the list I posted, I suspect one would find gons listed as well as hoppers.
My intention was simply to show the variety of railroads represented
shipping coal to a small town in Iowa.
