Re: former VGN cars?

Garth Groff and Sally Sanford <mallardlodge1000@...>


I'm surprised nobody has commented that the left hand "Battleship" gondola is lettered USN. I suppose it's appropriate letter on a battleship. (Ewwww!)  I'm supposing that these cars were sold off to the gummint during WWII for on-base use (interchange use should have required USNX reporting marks).

Yours Aye,

More likely C&IM gondolas that were akin to the VGN types.

Hi List Members,


Are the six axle gons former VGN cars? If so, they are far from home.
