NS 617042 was built by Bethlehem Steel in December of 1975 as RDG 38958, part of class GHy. Unfortunately I do not know the former Conrail number for this car. Under Conrail it became a class GR52C gondola. The consolidated stencil lists the car as being rebuilt in September 1991. This car received an NS patch out some time after the Conrail split. Although no NS class is indicated on the side of the car, NS lists these cars under their class GP36. It's quite unusual to see a freight car that has carried three different car classes!
