G39 Iron Ore Jenny

Description
Iron ore is dense, much more so than coal, and thus specialized wagons are required to carry it. The G39 was a class of large iron ore gondolas built for the PRR in 1961, with specialized 'strikers' to allow the car to be loaded into a rotary dumper without need of an entire locomotive.

Finally an end to hauling literally every commodity around in (long, low) gondolas!

Stats for nerds:

Introduced: 1961, 1968, 1976 (PRR, Penn Central, and Conrail, respectively)
Capacity: 75/4 = 18(ish)
Max. Speed: 45 MPH
Weight: 22 tons

[t.co]

Awesome mod. I grew up watching these go in and out of the steel mill in my hometown growing up. Thanks a ton for these.

Shouldn't the penn central cars have half the capacity? And move twice as slow? lol
