Tangent Scale Models 10712-14 HO Scale ACF 70-Ton Welded Drop-End Gondolas, Wabash "Original Black 1951+" WAB #12619

The 52-6 welded 70-ton drop-end gondola car as produced by ACF. First produced in 1948 for Pennsylvania Railroad as class G31, PRR alone purchased 11,600 welded cars of this body style in the G31/G31A/G31B/G35, serving the “Standard Railroad of the World” in every corner of North America in many customer applications. If you model somewhere in North America, you can use a PRR model! Besides PRR, several other railroads also purchased these gondolas from ACF, and some former PRR cars were purchased second-hand by various railroads. Most of these gondolas were phased from revenue service during the 1990s.
