G-70-18 Gondolas

A roster of the G-70-18 class gondolas is provided as follows:

	SP 351600-351999	(re #'d to SP 352118-352177)

These 60'-5" composite, drop-bottom wood chip gondolas were built by Magor (lot W-4950) in 10/1960 and featured plywood side sheets, drop doors, rotary couplers, Universal hand brakes and 6014 ft3 capacity. They were nicknamed "kings." A group of these cars was renumbered above the G-70-19 cars in the late 70's or early 80's, presumably they were rebuilt in some way.
