Gene, I asked a friend about coke containers in gons. Below is his reply.


Oliver (tractor plant in Charles City Ia.) normally got all their coke in container cars all seem to be 50 foot  Kopper’s company private gondolas, and these were what I saw moving on IC trains through Lyle (Minn.) in my School days. I think, the routing may have been:  Who ever switched the Kopper’s refinery to Minneapolis-M & St.L-Albert lea-IC Charles city - CCW delivery..
