A photo from the Cornell University Library:

This photo can be enlarged quite a bit to get a good look at the car's interior.

Also a line of B&O hoppers in the background.

Here is a Reading drop-end mill gondola with its load, a 90' steel plate girder made by the Shoemakersville Bridge Co. for an overpass being built for grade crossing elimination on Staten Island.

I also scratch built a model of one with working drop ends.
