Designed for ease of loading and unloading, the Drop End Gondola could be found across North America from 1937 to as recently as the 1990s. Used for carrying coil loads, scrap metal, tires, and other bulk commodities, and in their later years, maintenance-of-way materials, these cars were popular among railroads for most of the 20th century. The Bachmann 50.6" Drop End Gondola features detailed construction and functioning drop-ends for loading and unloading.
