Diagonal Plate Loading and Freight Car Shipment

Gatwood, Elden J SAD


Does anyone know of photos, write-ups, and other sources for diagonal loading of steel plates, from U.S. Steel mills, and the freight cars that served this?

I know a decent amount on the PRR F25 and G36 class cars in this service, but would also welcome additional info on ANY of those cars, plus the specific mills that did it.

I know USSteel Homestead was one, and one of the Bethlehem facilities, but no good details on either.

Any stories, data and photos are very welcome!
