        Most gonds of this type had folding ends. they folded into the car body for oversize loading. when done, it was placed upright again.

The lumber 1935 picture shows a Northern Pacific gondola with the end removed to facilitate the extra length wood beams. How would the empty car be routed to regain its end?
