Quick Overview

Product Description

Beginning in the 1970s, the output of Western coal production became significant. With this increase in output, the demand for rotary coal-type gondolas increased as well.
Nearly all of the car manufacturers of the time, such as FMC, Pullman-Standard, Evans, Ortner and Greenville, introduced competitive rotary coal gondolas in a market already
dominated by Thrall. Billed as "A rugged, high-mileage coal car for unit-train operation with rotary dumping service," FMC's 4000 Coal Gondola was successful among utility companies of the mid-west. The Public Service Company of Oklahoma, Central Power & Light Company, and Southwestern Electric Power Company were clients of FMC, and since that time, these cars have passed into the second-ownership of companies like RTI Railway Services. Today, the FMC Gondola, and the similar gondolas of other manufacturers, are used in scrap and tie replacement services everywhere.
