Re: [Non-DoD Source] Re: [RealSTMFC] Hauling Sand before Covered Hoppers Became Popular

Elden, the HM and HT are open hoppers. The GS & GBS are gons. The LO is one of the MSTL covered hoppers used for company sand. They only had 10 of these cars.
Also note that Clark has typed an extra 0 in the MSTL LO listing.
It is quite possible an error was contained in the handwritten documents from which Clark has transcribed into his spreadsheet.
From another source, on the MSTL:
7/6/1945 NH 60587 load of sand to Clare Iowa
7/13/1947 PRR 334732 sand to Iowa Highway Commission at Dallas Center IA
7/13/1947 NH 58108 sand to Iowa Highway Commission at Dallas Center IA
7/13/1947 MSTL 30423 sand to Iowa Highway Commission at Dallas Center IA
7/16/1947 MSTL 30291 Co sand
8/8/1947 CBQ 166113 sand to Grand Jct IA
MSTL 30423 & 30291 were GA all steel 41’ drop bottom gons
You’ll have to look up the other cars yourself.

Very interesting, Clark. Are you saying these were all gons?

Below are some examples of sand cars. Beings this is an M&StL list there were lots of their GS gons. I only copied one.
