Hi List Members,
Awesome photo! I especially like the gondola closest to the camera – it has a hole punched into the side, and the side plates are rusted thru near the bottom.
While I cannot identify the gondola based on visible lettering, the construction and the rivet pattern tells me it is definitely a PRR class GS (or GS subclass) gondola

Great shot, incredibly clear.  But the mere thought of wanting to model that load gives me a very bad headache!

Photo: PRL&P Pulpwood Car 1977

An undated photo from the Oregon Historical Society. Library:

This photo can be enlarged quite a bit and shows good detail.

PRL&P was the Portland Railway, Light & Power Company, a railway company and electric power utility in Portland, Oregon, from 1906 until 1924.
