This class of gondolas were steel-framed, fixed-ends gondolas of USRA design. They were originally built in 1919. The PRR had 750 of these cars listed on the ORER in 1950 (an insignificant number in PRR terms). All but one of these cars were gone by 1958, and that one was gone by the time of the PC merger.
