Those GM&O cars had "combination" roofs - The 2nd & 3rd panels from each end (not counting the blank panels
at the extreme ends) were rectangular panels, while the other panels were all diagonal panels. This was found on a
number of such cars for railroads in order to accomodate the interior stowable auto racks. The utility of this was very
short lived as autorack flat cars rapidly took over the business.

I've attached a photo from the future that shows this.

Cars like these were still being used after the PC merger.  Many transit cars went East through Rose Lake yard  in E St Louis coupled to them with the empty cars going back to the TRRA after delivery of the new equipment.

Re: N&W gon loaded with coal in 1938 Kentucky

Tim O'Connor
 


Could be. The N&W had almost 5,000 gondolas with drop doors in several 90000's series in 1940.
They had different interior heights and lengths, which is kind of weird... And look at the size of the coal
chunks in the gondola! Gotta be somewhat difficult trying to remove the coal through those small doors in
the floor. I think Sunshine, Pocahontas and Speedwitch all offered N&W low side gondola kits.

Hi List Members,
 
We get a nice view of N&W coal hauling cars, including a N&W gon loaded with coal, in the image linked below. Sadly, the gon reporting marks are just a little too indistinct to make out.
 
 
More details at the link below...
 
 
Enjoy!

According to the PRRT&HS Gondolas book, those are for mating to subway cars so the cars could be moved in regular trains. They were stenciled "RETURN TO ST. LOUIS CAR CO. IN EAST ST. LOUIS."
