The 52' gondola was the mainstay of Conrail's gondola fleet, hauling everything from scrap and slabs to finished steel coils. Unlike some other car types, Conrail's thirst for gondolas remained steady throughout the entire life of the railroad. Big Blue bolstered its gondola fleet throughout the years by rebuilding old cars into the G52M, G52N, G52P and G52Q classes, and also purchased used gondolas from roads like the Rock Island, P&LE, Bethlehem Steel, MKT, MP, and the DT&I.
