G-100-7 Gondolas

A roster of the G-100-7 class gondolas is provided as follows:

	SP 333500-334399	

These 42'-6" gondolas were built by GBEC in 1965 and featured 2420 ft3 capacity. As built, they featured a rectangular plate mounted on the car side for the road name. These were removed at some point, as very few photos exist showing them intact. Many were rebuilt/renubered in 1984 as G-100-7R class. Drawings of these cars can be found in the August 1969 issue of RMC magazine (mistakenly identified as G-100-4's.) Some were also renumbered as SPMW cars for maintenance of way service.

A model has been offered in HO scall by ExactRail of this class. However, they offer the car painted in a variety of foobie paint schemes, including Cotton Belt which never had any cars of this type. Caveat emptor!
