The G25

G25 #315944 was modified for "screw service" -- the transport of two ship propellers.

Walthers offers the G25. Westerfield offers the G25 as a resin kit.

The G25A

A short lived modification was the addition of wood lining on 100 G25's. Most were returned to G25 by the late 1940s, with one example making it to 1952.

No HO scale models have been produced to date.

The G25B

Starting in 1950, 1,737 G25 were modified by having the drop doors welded shut and new vertical brake installed on the end sill.

Westerfield offers the G25B as a resin kit.
