Correct. The last of the NYC's original USRA composite gondolas were
rebuilt as all steel cars in the early 1930s.

I would like to repaint it for
M&StL or Frisco because the above quote. I, so far, haven't found
photos for lettering. Can anyone direct me? I would think that both
would have been painted one of the many variants of "freight car
red". Does anyone disagree?

Ed, I have in-service photos of both Frisco and M&StL cars which I
can scan for you and send off-list.
