Re: Gon Identification

I took a look around on Geo. Elwood's site and found
the following Jim Sands photo from 1966:

Same bracing config., though rebuilt with steel sides.

Same animal?

Hello all:

A photo was posted today on the Monon list of the
Michigan City Indiana rounhouse taken in 1946. In
photo there is an unusual composite gon. It has
panels in this configuration:

[ |/|/|/|/|/|&#92;|&#92;|&#92;|&#92;|&#92;| ]

That is the end panels do not have diagonal
the central 10 have diagonals facing each other in
groups of 5.

This seems unusual. Can anyone identify this car?
Not without the photo, Mike, though it sounds like a
MILW 80000 series
48'6" welded-frame composite mill gon.
