these cars are indeed former VGN battleship gons because of their 6-wheel trucks (and their height and other proportions). The C&IM gons were much lower and rode on 4-wheel trucks (as Frank already pointed out).

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.
