It is my understanding that the Mantua gon is also a dead ringer for
an
ACL
gon as well.

About the ConCor watermelon car. Several years ago when I was the
manufacturers liaison guy for the acl & SAL group I contact them and
asked
if they would consider doing the car in the "ONLY" correct scheme for
that
car. No market for that was the comment I got from them.

Similar comments have also come from Mantua with regard to the acl gon
as
well.

My frustration was with such cars as the Mantua gon. Here is a unique
car,
not just another 40 foot steel gon in an ocean of 40 foot steel gons.
Based on an Erie car of the 1920's, it is almost as high as an H21.
Mantua
could do at least three schemes - original Erie, Erie with small
diamond
and
Erie with diamond with the "Erie" in bigger lettering. I have to
check,
but
they might also be able to do Erie-Lackawanna.

The AHM/Con-Cor watermelon car is available from Con-Cor, but it seems
the
ACL version is always unavailable. This is the only scheme it is
really
correct for. Again, there are several different ACL schemes for this
car
over the years that could be done, before expanding into the realm of
ridiculous.
