Bill;

 

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?
