Re: San Juan GS gondola

I discussed this with John Parker (San Juan Car Co.) at the Narrow Gauge Convention in St. Louis and he indicated that it may never happen. If I understood him, it seems that there is a problem with getting the castings out of the mold, that they are too big and don't cast out right. Also, with his mold maker gone, it may not be something that can be re-done.

Anyone know what happened to the San Juan SP G-50-23 GS gondola
