Here's the image of WM 50519 loaded with coal. This 61-foot mill gon was built in the late 1920s. The photo is dated 1936/08/05.

A Lake Terminal mill gondola pressed into bulk material service. Interesting. F&C produces an HO scale resin kit for this gondola. A few lettering styles are available, including this one. 

While bulk loads in a mill gon are not typical, they have occurred. I one found a photo of a 61-foot Western Maryland mill gon loaded with coal.
