All About Aurora Postage Stamp Trains
4882: Gondolas

Prototype Information

There have been hundreds of gondola car designs, yet curiously the 42-foot all-steel flat-bottom type wasn't as prevalent as others, so it was a bit of a challenge to find the prototype for Roco's model. It would be even harder to determine which railroads used them, so I leave that up to more ambitious modelers. These models are still being released today from other manufacturers, such as Atlas.
