Southern low side gondolas

George Courtney

There is a photo of one of the N&W's similiar low-sided cars
hauling sand to the s.w. virginia coalfields. Used to hold down the
build up of coal dust in the mines evidently. Seems I read
somewhere??? that they were useful for hauling coal to locations
without trestles as men could more easily shovel coal out of the low
