Great to see a photo of one of the 36 foot boxcars! Someday... But a question - could that be the side of one of the CV's GS gons?

Yes, that certainly is one of the drop bottom cinder gons.
Researching them has proven challenging - I'm having trouble piecing together when they appeared on the railroad. What makes it really puzzling is the numbers on the cars I have photos of don't align with the Freight Car Classification sheets.
Have never been able to untangle that puzzle!
