G-70-10 Gondolas

A roster of the G-70-10 class gondolas is provided as follows:

	T&NO 43250-43349 		(to SP 330750-330849)

These 40'-1" sulphur gondolas were built by the T&NO shops at Algiers, LA in 1953 and featured wood sides and 1573 ft3 capacity when originally constructed to combat the corrsive effects of the suphur. They were later rebuilt with steel sides for general service and renumbered into the parent SP's numbering system.

For more information on the SP's sulphur cars and those of the Santa Fe, see the September 1981 issue of RMC magazine for an excellent article by Ed Christ entitled "AT&SF and T&NO (SP) SULFUR GONDOLAS."
