MP 643747 - This black gondola is showing its age some eighteen years later; 4/2/96. As the story goes, the NdeM owed the Mopac several thousand dollars in car hire and offered to build these gondolas to offset payment (which incidentally would have been cheaper than buying gons by US builders). Using black and white photos of MP's gons, the builders had no idea what color to use, so these cars were painted all-over black with white grabs
