Bethgon Coal + Grain Gondolas

Ever since 1982 the BethGon Coalporter has been hauling "black diamonds" across the United States. The largest selling Coal Gondola in the world, the car's double tub design increases hauling capacity while reducing maintenance requirements. Tubs below the car lower the center of gravity, providing a smoother ride. Since Coal is no longer sold at the volume it once was in the United States, many coal carrying railroad cars have been re-purposed. Since the use of used alcohol grain for animal feed is popular for farmers in the western part of the United States, unused Coal Gondolas cars proved up for the challenge and were converted for use as a Protein Gondola. These covered gondolas are used in freight trains in the western and southern parts of the states in long, endless fleets, primarily on the BNSF. Since the load of feed is biodegradable and needs to be delivered as quickly as possible, trains carrying these long loads are placed on top priority on the rails.
