Load looks like ends or caps for large tanks. The hole makes me think of a horizontal propane tank or something similar.

Definitely NOT 1960. Probably winter 1951=1952. That gondola is pristine, and was built in October 1951.

Cool load. What would these be used for?

Hi List Members,

 

Cool image of gondola NYC 715035 with load in 1960 at Lukens Steel. Note the gon has some kind of internal (possibly semi-permanent?) structure to help brace the load

 

 

Enjoy!
