Re: Athearn C&NW 65 ft mill gon

Gene Green <bierglaeser@...>

I assume from Richard Hendrickson's post on this gondola that there is
an actual prototype for the Athearn 65 ft. gon.

What might that prototype be?

When were gons of this length and general design first built?

The paint schemes I have seen in ads and on Athearn's web site all
seem "modern" for this group. Has anyone tried to strip the paint on
one and reletter it?

From earlier posts on the Eastern Car Works gondola kit I infer that
the Athearn gon is not correct for the PRR G26. Right or wrong.
