According to the Walthers item number you provided, the kit you have is this one:
It’s a model of a USRA WW I-era composite drop-bottom gondola with numerous prototypes. InterMountain produces a better-detailed model in HO.
I’ll let the other guys chime in with more, but also found these on-line:
U.S.R.A. Composite Gondola

Is there an actual prototype for Walthers 933-6859 40' gondola? I did a search in the group files but did not find anything. I have the unbuilt kit. Not sure I really need it unless it can be built into something correct. It is an undecorated kit. Not sure I want to try tracking down decals for a model that does not represent a real prototype.
