4th try at posting this.
Chad Boas made some resin ends for my S scale USRA gondolas.  Attached is a shot of one of my models before painting.

As far as I can tell, the Monon was the only road that used these spiral ends on gons.  Other roads used Van Dorn ends on boxcars.

Thank you, Joe.  I'll try to post the second photo again.  Maybe my images are too large for the software.

Could be photo size, Roger. Sometimes the software rejects large photos, sometimes it don't. I don't know the reason.

Nice work Roger.  Nice photo too !

I like the detail on the track and ballast also.  Nice mixture of colors and joint bars on the rails !

Rick and Tom,
Thank you!  Tom, I have a batch of cars, including these 3 gons, to be painted, lettered and weathered, but I'm stuck until I can find out the color of the offset hoppers.
