1937 by Pressed Steel Car Co., serviced in June 1973, and runs on Bettendorf trucks. Northern Pacificís series 52000-52749 GS drop
bottom gondolas were built and then later fitted with height extensions to provide a low-cost chip car, creating the series 118500-
118540. The conversion created woodchip cars with a cubic capacity to 3968 cubic feet.
