First appearing in the 1920s, the Drop-End Gondola allowed for increased loading flexibility. The ends of the car would fold inwards, allowing loads that were longer than the length of the car to be carried, such as pipes or rails. The Bachmann 52'6" Drop-End Gondola comes in a variety of authentic paint schemes. Each car arrives fully assembled, featuring a highly detailed painted body with posable drop-end gates for realistic operation, blackened machined metal wheels with RP25 contours, magnetically operated E-Z Mate® couplers, and added weight for optimum tracking performance.
