Claus;

 

That is a different gon, and I am not sure whose.  Note the end sill, grabs, and other details appear to be different.

 

That jogged end grab and retainer location are hints, but I do not know….

Hi List Members,

 

Here is a second photo showing a similar (same?) gondola...

Hi Bob and List Members,

 

I’ve not done a rivet-by-rivet comparison, but it looks like it is identical to and built to the PRR class GS design – see link below.

This is a very clear photo and can be enlarged quite a bit.

Hi Elden,
 
Thanks for writing – someone else said they thought it was Hocking Valley, and there was a second photo in the collection to support that suggestion

Claus;

 

THAT is one interesting gon, of course which there are numerous examples of.  The RRs responses to the uniquely badly-treated gondola car fleets were numerous and varied.  I am always interested in how RRs built new or rebuilt to address this problem.

 

Thanks for sharing!
