Re: Wood floors in gons?

Tim O'Connor

And many flat cars had steel decks, or partial steel decks. And
some gondolas had 1/2 wood - 1/2 steel "nailable steel floors" --
the old Revell/Concor gondola has a beautiful version of this, on
tooling created more than 60 years ago! It's not an era thing, as
much as it's a matter of the intended use of the car.

Back in the transition era, which most of us model, many gons had wood
floors. Even in the steel trade many had wood floors. I don't know
what the proportion of wood to steel was, but big roads like the PRR
had both wood and steel floored gons. Elden could probably cite the
particular classes which had wood floors.
