Bob, Bill, and Group;

 

That indeed is a clone or “captured” PRR GS gondola.  Note the shaped of the 10 side ribs, end and end sill details, and grab arrangement, including the tilted end grabs.

 

I have never seen anything on this gon, its origins, history, nor end.

 

Thanks for sharing!

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

My thanks to Bill West on the PRR Group for the link tip.
