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.
