From the "Ahead of the Torch" Facebook site:

Note the gondola in the background of this transfer table restoration at the Elgin County Railroad Museum. I couldn't find anything about the car on their website, so perhaps it isn't even part of the museum. If it is a preserved car, is it rare? I don't seem to recall seeing a lot of gons with round ends. Any info welcome.

I am positive this gon is part of the museum's collection, having been there for a long time. Probably last seved as a MofW car for the C&O in Canada.
From what I seem to remember, it has HV Ry trucks under it (or at least one of the trucks is cast with the Hocking Valley initials).
I am sure someone with more info will be along shortly....
