Thanks for any help,

50'6" Drop-End Gondola
Gondolas are crucial to freight rail operations. Designed for bulk or oversized loads, their low sidewalls allow them to carry a wide range of cargo, from steel plates, coils, and scrap metal, to ballast and coal. Some can additionally be found hauling pre-constructed track segments to work sites in maintenance-of-way service. First appearing in the 1920s, the Drop-End Gondola allowed for increased flexibility in loading and unloading. The ends of the cars would fold outwards, allowing heavy materials to be rolled directly onto the cars from ramps or loading docks, meaning less manpower or machinery was necessary to load the train. The Bachmann 50'6" Drop-End Gondola comes in a variety of authentic mid-20th century paint schemes. Each car comes fully assembled, featuring a highly detailed painted body with a posable drop-end gate for realistic operation, blackened machined metal wheels with RP25 contours, magnetically operated E-Z Mate® couplers and added weight for optimum tracking performance. Expand your transition-era freight operations with the Bachmann HO scale 50'6" Drop-End Gondola!
