Description
 
The 52-6 riveted 70-ton drop-end gondola car as designed and produced by Bethlehem is the fifth all-new model in our HO scale product line.   First produced in March 1937 for Baltimore & Ohio Railroad as class O-59, B&O alone purchased 4,000 of these drop-end gondolas which served every corner of North America in many services.   Five additional railroads purchased these Bethlehem-design gondolas in intervening years until production ceased in 1957.   Most of these gondolas were phased from revenue service by the mid-1980s, with many serving additional years in various MOW roles.
