My guess is they were ex SP cars. I believe all the ex PRR jennies are no longer legal for interchange due to their age 40 years rule for cars built before 1975. If they were ex PRR cars I would love to see a picture if someone took one. --------- Ken McCorry

GVSR would make them Golden West cars. There were a couple Ferromex gons (marks FXE) in an Un-ion Pacific consist today that got me thinking the same thing. It seems PK beat me to the punch, tho.
About Tue of last week, I spotted what looked like 4
former G39 ore jennies moving eastward. The markings on the car appeared to be GVRS or GVSR. Not exactly sure as they were being passed by a westbound and I was looking through trailers. It appeared that the top cord of the car was somewhat thicker than a G39 but it could have been modified. Anyone know if these were former G39 ore jennies or not?
