Re: Milw gon photo

I agree, Jack, not the same car, at least, not at the same time.  I’ve never seen a stiffener (for lack of a better term) on the inside of a gon end.




This pair of photos currently in Ted Culotta's ebay sale are not, I think, the same car.

TWO Milwaukee Road MILW 84794 41' GS gondola 8x10 photos

The exterior view of 84794 shows an apparently freshly shopped composite GS gon. The interior view is of a gon with a tight wood bottom having its wood siding replaced with steel.


A neat picture of the work in progress.
