WESTERFIELD MODELS, LLC. GOLDEN AGE LINE
Operating Era: 1912-1953. Temporarily out of production. Norfolk & Western. The first high capacity gondola, N&W built 750 GKa cars numbered 100000-100749 in 1914 for use at its new Lamberts Point rotary dumper. The cars were successful and in 1916 and additional 1,000 cars of class GKb numbered 100750-101749 were built. These were 15" shorter and 3" taller but except for different end sills looked externally identical to the GKA. Built without internal crossties, these were added to both classes in the early 1920s and the cars repainted. Rebuilt from the ground up in 1927-30, the cars were given peaked corrugated ends and re-classed GKd. They lasted until 1953. This product is undergoing mold rebuilding and is not available at this time.
