On the subject of cool gons, has anyone built one of these?

That is a different gon, and I am not sure whose. Note the end sill, grabs, and other details appear to be different.
That jogged end grab and retainer location are hints, but I do not know….
Hi List Members,
Here is a second photo showing a similar (same?) gondola...

Hi Bob and List Members,
I’ve not done a rivet-by-rivet comparison, but it looks like it is identical to and built to the PRR class GS design – see link below.

This is a very clear photo and can be enlarged quite a bit.
