D&RGW High Side Gondola

AMS - D&RGW High Side Gondola

Between 1898 and 1906, the American Car & Foundry built 1,301 high side gondolas for the Rio Grande, 32ft long and with a capacity of 25 tons. They fell into 5 classes having slight differences in the height of their sides or the distance between their truck bolsters, and have been rebuilt in 1923 and 1926 by the D&RGW.  They constituted the main body of the gondola fleet until the end of freight operations on the Rio Grande narrow gauge in 1968.
