Re: Can Anyone identify the gondola coupled to the MP blister sided gondola?

Claus,

I see them also. Faintly, likely due to them fully catching the sunlight, but they are there.

Hi Claus,

 

Good eye.  Now that you’ve brought them to our attention, I can see them too.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts on what looks to be CG 39623 shown to the left of the water tower?  A ventilated boxcar perhaps?

 

Pax,

Hi Gary and List Members,

 

If you look at the image at "Original" resolution, one can faintly (very faintly) make out the diagonals on the near half of the car. They don't show well because the angle of the sun illuminates those diagonals very evenly, and so they seem to disappear unless you do some close inspection.

 

The "Original" resolution image can be viewed at the link below.

 

 

 

You might have to click on the image in some browsers before you can see the image at its full resolution.

The picture is on the Central of Georgia and the gondola in question has about half of one side with diagonals and the other without:
