PRR 475100 is a class F30A flat. This was the largest class of PRR flats of interest in this timeframe. They were the cast steel flats produced by GSI, during the depression. They roamed EVERYWHERE.
The easiest HO model is the one done by Bowser, but I think there is going to be an even better model coming😊

Here is another installment of "Daily Interchange Report of Cars" from the NJI&I to the Wabash at Pine in 1953. The following list is dated 06May53. It is cars which were left between 11P and midnight for pick up by Westbound Train 89, due at Pine around 9:30A on 07May. All cars originated at South Bend. I am showing Initials, Number, Destination, Contents.

RI 1013, Wabash 12539, and Wabash 12612 are gondolas. I am going to assume the loads of autos were in crates for export.
