  • (1) HO G22 Gondola

Overview

These cars were built between 1915 and 1917. G22 gons remained in service throughout the PRR years, and many into work train service in Penn Central and even Conrail.

Starting in 1930, many G22 gons were equipped with 100-ton trucks and assigned to container service. They typically hauled multiple small containers of PRR design which were use for various dry aggregate materials.

Rapido’s new HO model is based on the G22 class with both single- and three-rib ends. Both G22 and G22B container cars are available, with accurate container loads included with the G22b.
