Kris Gondolas I

The first gondola car, also known as a "gon," was placed into service by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1830. Gondolas are listed in the Kris Model Trains chapter of Greenberg's Guide to Kusan Trains without variations. A Kris Model Trains gondola factory print sample may be seen here.

The gondolas were reportedly presented to select marketing staff as an award for exemplary sales, thus making them fewer in number than the Amphenol boxcars. The road number on the car is the company phone number. Not listed in Greenberg's.
