<p>Don&#39;t have any models to sell, but thought I would share a memory. In 1959 I was attending the Air Force photography school at Lowry Air Base in east Denver. The base received the coal for the steam heat plant and for furnaces in many of the older WWII buildings. The coal came in D&amp;RGW drop bottom gons pushed and pulled by a blue GE 44 ton switcher. Directly in front of the main dinning (chow) hall was a coal trestle where the coal was unloaded. The GE could push two of the gons up the ramp. Other gons were unloaded into a pit at the base steam plant. The tracks crossed the north-south run way and the railroad signals were controlled by the base control tower. I watched the GE with four D&amp;RGW drop bottom gons wait for an Air Force T33 trainer to land. The tracks also went to Buckley Air Base and Fitzmonds Army hospital. Was interesting to a guy from Louisiana to see coal being unloaded. </p><p><br></p><p>Jerry Day<br class="yui-cursor"></p>
