Barrel & Gondola Cars
The gondola was a common item in Lionel's annual product line, in fact it is one of a few freight cars to be produced in all 25 years of Lionel's postwar era. Although the gondola is easy to find, unusual ones do exist such as the 3444 animated Cop & Hobo gondola -- where a railroad security man chases a hobo around simulated wooden crates inside the car. Additionally, the barrel car is nothing more than a modified gondola and carried six stained barrels.
