While the gon is a former EP&SW car, the El Paso & Southwestern company was not merged into the SP until 1955. The SP leased the line starting November 1, 1924, but a formal merging was not until 29 years later.

The gon is ex El Paso & South Western. They were not an SP subsidiary, just merged into the SP in 1924.
