Re: Gondolas with scrap loads

Depends on the railroad Jim. My railraod didn't own any gons they'd want used to haul scrap, so they'd 'barrow' other roads cars.

Hi,

My instincts tell me that a gondola with a scrap metal load was
not highly likely to be moved long distances. That they were - most
of the time/usually - routed to a local facility that was probably
in a relatively nearby 'large city/town'.
And I'm guessing that they would be more likely to be found on or
near their home road.

Do I have this right?
