Hi Bob and List Members,
 
I've spent quite a bit of time looking at this great photo. It was this photo (and others) that made it clear to be that even by 1929 most PRR class GS gons no longer had their as-built archbar trucks and had received cast frame trucks.
 
In N scale, the PRR class GS gon is possible, but it is quite a kitbash! See attached.

I like the nice, light weathering touch on most of these freight cars.  😊

 

BTW, I think I see a 28 or 29 weigh date on one of the GS gons; the cleanest looking one.
