Didn't Varney offer
one of their gondolas lettered for Ohio Seamless Tube?
In the fifties Varney offered this model, painted in a bright yellow
scheme.
It seems also that there was a "gallows" at one end, for slinging the
tube
sections in and out of the car, and not unlike those specialty cars
rigged for

Didn't AHM offer their Hotco made 52 ft. War Emergency composite gondola
in this same scheme? That molding, if not the paint schemes used, wasn't
too bad but I have not seen it offered in a number of years.
