While 1961 is just past our cutoff, I spent the summer at Levinson Steels fabricating plant (formerly the Pressed Steel Car plant) in Mckeesport PA. We were fabricating the bridges for a major section of I-70 in Ohio. We loaded very long plate girders and a few trusses, always in drop end gons with gons also as idlers. So the idlers and support cars can be either gons or flats.
