Wendlandt's 65-Foot Gondolas

For the gondola project I started out with the Athearn 65ft one from a few years ago. Finding pictures of this car in mow service has been very hard. I finally found one with a ¾ view so I went off of that. It looks to haul ties (not sure new, used or both). First off I Removed the trucks and couplers. The couplers were replaced with Kadee's and air hoses were added. The car also had no lube plates so I had to add those decals. The car was then weathered and the safety stripes added after. The new weathered trucks were added at the end.
