3564 GondolaAbout the 3564 Thrall Gondolas:

A gondola is an open-top type of rolling stock that is used for carrying loose bulk materials. Because of its low side walls, gondolas are used to carry either very dense material, such as steel plates or coils, or bulky items such as prefabricated pieces of rail track.

Thrall Car was started by “Pops” Thrall in Chicago Heights, Illinois, as a railcar repair facility. Over the years Thrall expanded to a railcar builder with plants across the United States and in Europe. Thrall car passed between the family until it was sold in 2001 to Trinity Industries of Texas.
