G35 E19541 side PRR377450 RMS

The G35 was essentially a revised version of the G31. It shared car-body dimensions and ends (52'6" internal length). It differed in that there was a dip in the cross-bearers to allow passage of a continuous length stringer for more durability. Also, the top cord was constructed of two chanels welded flange to flange to form a box vs. the "Z"-angle found on the G31.

The G35 entered service in April 1952.

Cars 377450-378449 featured standard wooden floors; 378450-379149 had nailable steel floors, and 379150-379349 had alternating "planks" of steel and wood. 

Car 379247 was equipped with racks to haul auto frames.
