It's not all scrap in the photo. The pile in the foreground is pig iron, and a nice reference for color and appearance of a load of pigs.

Does anyone recognize the car partly visible at far left?
It's a pity we can't see more; the horizontal member in the middle of the side is unusual.

Hi Jack and List Members,


Jack asked: "It's a pity we can't see more; the horizontal member in the middle of the side is unusual"


Yes, unusual indeed. Perhaps even unique. The gon in question looks just like these gons I photographed at Bethlehem Steel in Bethlehem PA only weeks before the plant closed.


I was so taken by these unique gons, that I can also attach a photo of a scratch-build N scale model!


Thanks Jack for calling my attention to this gon!


Enjoy!
