They sure did. Here they are on the PRR at Duquesne, PA., early sixties, for transfer to USSteel’s Duquesne Works.
Wish I had a couple of those!
The NKP had a couple of series of gons in dolomite container service out of the online plant near Maple Grove, Ohio. Same type of containers, 7 tons each IIRC. In one of my Cycs there is an add for these containers but I am too lazy to dig it out. As far as I know the NKP cars all went east to the mills.
This is a pretty rare shot, maybe due to unflashy nature of the subject:
But super interesting that cars on the charging floor being unloaded for use include the scrap gon and dolomite container car. Whose are they? Seems LSC is Laclede Steel Co.; OK, served by who?
