Re: What is a "Manuta gondola"?

Douglas Harding

IF you scroll to the bottom of the listing you will see a series of photos, of a short dump car, that has a raised sloped center board to send the contents outward. The listing says no couplers, but the photos clearly show Kadee couplers on the car. Looks to be sitting on a green Overland box, but no end of the box is shown. I would guess the seller does not know what he is selling.

I suspect it’s a typo for Mantua.  The listing has ended so couldn’t look at it.

Hello friends,

please have a look:

I have never seen this car before. Anyone of you knowing something about it? Is this after a US prototype at all?

Many thanks
