Charlie, what type of end do you mean? Drop ends? There were
certainly more classes
of Santa Fe gondolas with drop ends, than just two. At first I
thought it could be a
Ga-103 but I wondered if the plain bearing trucks would have
been applied in 1958 to
a brand new mill gondola. The only photo I have of one shows
roller bearing trucks.

Assuming that is a Santa Fe gondola, it would be either a
Ga-91 class car numbered 168400-168549 built in 1955 by Santa
Fe or a Ga-103 class car numbered 168150-168399 also built be
Santa Fe in 1958. It would be nice if there was a car number
for the car. Those are the only two classes of mill gondolas
with that type of ends.
