Hi Eric and List Members,
The car sez HOMESTEAD WORKS on it, this indicates Homestead Steel Works
which was bought up and integrated into Carnegie Steel.

Hi List Members,
I believe it was Carnegie Steel that built some of the earliest 65 foot
mill gons for their own internal plant use. It was the success of these gons
that quickly convinced the railroads to buy similar cars.
These two images linked below illustrate the car CSCO 534 nicely...
As I recall, one of the TSC books had an image of one of these cars, for
those in search of yet one more image.
I suspect the CSCO 65 foot gons may not have been used interchange
service, and perhaps never left the plant. Can anyone on the list confirm or
