Re: gons containing coal

Here in the Upper Midwest, seems coal loaded in the Twin Ports (Duluth/Superior) was into box cars while coal from SE Iowa and NW Illinois was in gondolas/hoppers. Most town coal dealers had sheds to keep the coal out of the weather with only a small opening to shovel it into from the car.
