Re: 41-foot gon questions

My question remains, when was the 11-panel 41'6" gondola as modeled by Accurail, and earlier by Tyco, introduced? Structurally this was a modern design, similar to the 1932 ARA boxcar, so I doubt the first ones came much before 1930. The North Western wasn't the only customer, just maybe the last.
