Auto Frame Loads In Gondolas


Bob Chaparro
 

For the various major railroads I'm looking for the number series or classes of the gondolas assigned to auto frame transport so I can research photo examples of these cars, their equipment and loads.

Thanks.

Here’s a link to modeling auto frames with a DT&I car.

Also another link using the Speedwitch 41’ 6” gondola which were used for auto frames as well. This series ended up on the GM&O.
