Surviving battleship gons

Sorry guys but those aren't survivng battleship gons. They are coil cars that were built in the 1940s for Tennessee Coal and Iron, the US Steel predecessor. The cars are V-shaped inside. I have the plans for the cars as they were published in an issue of the "Lineside" an NMRA Special Interest group.

The cars are now lettered for the Birmingham Southern as the railroad has taken over all of the USS Fairfield switching
