Re: Photo: Mostly Gondolas (Circa 1940s)

I am pretty sure the panel-sided MoPac gondolas carried sand a lot of the time, so 200 cubic feet of a dense material must have been worth it. The railroad had a lot of them so they must have seen a value in the increased capacity. Right off I am not sure, but how did the volume increase on twin hopper increase over the normal plain side versions? Jerry Michels
