Re: Southern Railroad drop bottom gondola question

George Eichelberger


The Southern was a big fan of “double drop bottom” (DDB) gons. In pre steel hopper days, they were referred to a “coal cars”. Here is a much cropped and resolution reduced part of Southern drawing SF-1098. If if corresponds to your model, all of the car’s spec and drawings are in the SRHA archives at TVRM.

(There is a work session this Friday and Saturday.)
