41-foot, 55-ton steel gondola with a flat steel floor. The prototype cars were built in 1926-7 by NYC in lot 542G numbers 361000 to 361499. This was a craftsman resin casting flat kit with decals included. A lot of work filing and fitting all of those parts together. Ed added Northeastern Bettendorf type of trucks and Kadee #808 couplers, as well as some other small detail parts. Ed put a load in it (not shown) to add some weight to this light plastic model, which brought it up to 7-1/2 ounces. The second photo is the F&C stock photo.
