Those are the as-built trucks. In the 1950s, a number of
cars
received replacement AAR trucks, so that is a possibility too.
Just for the record, Pacific Limited imported BOTH types of SP
gondolas in "O" scale. PL#1650 (came with brass T-section Bettendorf
trucks) has no rivet row on the side sheets, and PL#2000 (came with
brass Dalman trucks) does.
