From my 1961 ORER (probably also relevant to pre-1961 traffic), some non-steel, non-tin, GBR/GBSR cargoes:

NYC - GBSR, aluminum billets
SOU - GBSR, aluminum and steel mill products
C&O - GBR, Army tank engines
NKP - GBSR, special loading
ATSF - GBR, AEC material

There were several GBSRs that were used for coils on pallets.

Besides cut steel sheet/Tin plate, what else is transported in covered gons,
after WWII, in the mid west.
I'm more curious about covered low side gons, that seems to low, for coiled steel.
(or were coils laid on their sides, eye to the sky)
