Thrall 2244 15-Panel Gondola
Heavy Top Chord

Rock Island  RI 180041


Thrall's 52'-6" gondolas are some of the most common of the modern era.

These cars were available in 14 and 15 panel versions.

However, in 1971 and 1973 respectively, the Detroit Toledo and Ironton and Rock Island Railways purchased a unique variation of the 15-panel car.

This variation had a heavy duty top chord which reinforced the car sides against the rigors of general service.

Eventually, the Rock Island cars were acquired by Conrail, the Chicago South Shore and South Bend, and the Chicago and North Western.

According to the DT&I Color Guide, 39 of these cars still operated in DT&I paint as of 2006.

  • Designed, engineered and tooled in the United States
