Very interesting! So now the question is did those gondolas travel the ATSF-WP-GN inside gateway route to Great Falls, or SP-UP-MILW?
Either Richard or Tony might be able to find the answer as they have the GN:WP exchange books that cover several periods of time.
Yes, we have books for one month out of each of two years, 1947 and 1952 (if memory serves). But note that this is AFTER the zinc mine shut down, so any of the zinc traffic would be pretty unlikely to be in those books.
