Right you are Tim, they are from GS gon drop doors. What also makes these cars unique is the "PS" style ends.

Around the fifties I guess many were converted to piggyback service with all side sheathing removed. They were just a skeletal frame.

Someone at one time was going to produce that version, anyone know if that ever came about?

Not applicable for scales other than O, however
Pecos River Brass imported them in O scale. Sold out,
they sometimes come up on eBay and at O scale meets.

They also imported the composite cars with pre-cut
stripwood for the sides and floors (also for the
floors in the CRI&P cars).
