The G22 was 48' long with straight sides, 12 side stakes, fixed ends, and of riveted construction. Four thousand were built between 1915-16.
Between 1916-17, another 2,150 were built as class G22a and featured drop ends.
In 1930, 491 class G22 and G22a were rebuilt as class G22b.
All three classes had 2E-F2 Crown trucks, though some G22b had 2F-F3 or 2F-F4 trucks.
Per the 1954 freight roster, the G22 was the most prevalent of the gondolas, accounting for 12% of the fleet, with 4,862 still rostered. At the time there were still 425 G22b and 7 G22a roaming the rails. Many G22 family gondolas survived through to Penn Central.
The MSRP of this kit is $xxxx. A G22 kit has been previously available by Westerfield.
