An interesting model. Can you tell us how long they lasted in service? Were any sold off to other roads? Did any go into MW service or other uses?

    Like many of the very earliest steel gondolas, this car lacks a substantial top chord as well as a side sill. I would guess they readily buckled if overloaded, as did many of these early cars.
