Re: 40 ft gons


I wrote Stan Rydarowicz and sent him photos of gonodla ends, no word. I agree with your choice, but I also think we need Pullman ends, Pressed Steel and flipped Dreadnaughts.

A new reverse-dreadnaught end for the Red Caboose GS gondola would

How about the War Emergency 41 ft gondolas (only available as resin
kits from F&C)?
Good point about the ends. I've managed to fit a Detail
Associates Improved Dreadnaught end onto the F&C War Emergency gon to
model T&NO's Class G-50-21 cars, but additional end styles could be
very useful.
