The entry for the class GG gondola has obviously not been edited. It
includes listings for plans and photos of GG1 electric locomotives!

Not being familiar with the GG hopper, I went here:

The photo there is said to be a builder's photo, date of 11/16/39.
I can't believe that both are true! The text says they were built
in 1895, which is believable, but I'd be surprised to find one
hanging around 45 years later! On the other hand, it looks like
there are air hoses hanging down, so maybe this is a 1939 photo.
Anyone know? Were they in interchange service at that late date?
