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.
