Monon 3-bay hopper cars

Mont Switzer


The Monon had 100 of them, built by GATX in the late 1940's.  I believe as built the trucks were black.  Generally, when repainting freight cars the Monon did not repaint the trucks.  They were steam cleaned and inspected, but that was it.

Thanks Mont!  A friend asked me to weather some cars for him--I wanted to make sure I got it right.
