	They weren't gons. :-)
	Picture? Maybe of the reporting marks and number on a couple
	of the cars. I was too close to get the whole car and the fence at
	my back wouldn't let me back up.

	Well, maybe I should shoot the rest of the roll and take it in
	to see if I actually saw what I thought I saw. I'll swear that
	they were 2 bay covered hoppers. One had CR painted over,
	but the paint had worn away and you could clearly see both
	the PC and the CR They were in a Ballast train so sand would
	be a good bet for the lading.
