Besides the ACL which other roads ordered copies or near copies of
this gondola?


The Wabash built 250 of the 41'-6" gons at the Decatur car shop in
1944. Car had wood sides and floors, and were numbered in the 13000-
13249 series. Andrews and ARA/AAR cast sideframe trucks, from older
gondolas being scrapped, were used on the cars. Some were equipped
with auto frame racks in the late 1940's. The T&NO also had some of
these cars also. F&C has this car in their kit line.
