Hey, that's great news! Do you know if Sunshine is taking orders for
them yet?

FWIW, there was an L&N 42' 9-panel gondola, series 50000-56499,
built
by Pressed Steel in the late 20s. ORER shows 4300 of these in
1955.
Both this and the NC&StL cars have the same width and height to
within an inch and lengths to within a foot. There is a picture
from
UofL archives showing the four center stakes extending slightly
below
the straight bottom edge of the side. These were built as drop
bottom
cars.

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the tip, but Frank's already done those cars for
Sunshine. He's looking for similar solid bottom gons to match the L&N
and Monon cars.
