Anyone have pics of PRR gondola class G31D 375750-376949?

I don't own the color guide book and can't seem to find photos online.  I'm just curious what the ends look like and how hard it would be to convert the BLMA drop end car to fixed.

Anyone know of or have pictures?

There's a bunch of stuff at the Hagley online, with and without covers:

Good luck!

Beat me to pics, but Rob's page has a link to some info (in HO) of modelling these gons, including the G35 class which was practically identical with a different underframe.
(in case that might help)
Cheers,
Scott

Yes! Thanks guys.  They must block Google.  :x

Okay, follow up question.  Does the Morning Sun Color Guide have pictures of this series painted in later schemes?

You don't mention how may points the bonus question is worth?  :P

http://prr.railfan.net/freight/classpage.html?class=G31

There are 3 Morning Sun Books on PRR cars. Rob's pages indicate the painted scheme under "Photos in Print"
CK = Circle Keystone (1930s-54)
SK = Shadow Keystone (1954-57)
PK = Plain Keystone (1958-68)

There were variants in the later schemes (standing ready to be corrected on dates!)

I have all 3 books, but am too stupid to work out how to post them here. Perhaps a smarter person can make it happen?
Cheers,
Scott

 :facepalm:

Yeah, I know that site.  Since I didn't own the books, I never looked to see it noted the paint schemes.

Maybe I can sneak into Vollmers and 'borrow' those books.  Not like he'd miss them.   ;)

Thanks,

Jason

The only way I know to "post" a book here is to take a picture of the page.  I did that, once, and it worked, but the picture is likely to be distorted.  Either page isn't perfectly flat, or the camera isn't at exactly the right angle, or...  But it would show the paint scheme.

Get it as flat as possible on a scanner and scan it into a PDF...the pages you want to post but not the whole book.  ;)
