Re: Mystery Gondola Kit

John Riddell

This gondola “kit” was made by National Car Cast, 34 Allen Street E., Waterloo, Ontario in the 1980s.
It represents a Penn Central gon of series 557000-557298.  IL 52-6, IH 3-10, capacity 1856 cubic feet. The ORER lists 46 of the cars in service in October 1981.
The kit has fixed ends that possibly were rebuilt from the gondolas original ends.
The kit, number G-3,  includes a sheet of 13 assembly steps and a sheet of photos of prototype gon PC 557016.
