Very interesting, because it also looks like this gon had been re-lettered
for N&W at one point (you can see that the road name ends in "ERN").  There
is also some class and other data lettering that appears to have been
painted over top of the VGN herald.  Is this a case of the newer paint
peeling off and exposing the older VGN herald underneath?
After thinking about it a bit more, it looks like somebody just didn't
bother to paint that panel when the car was painted last.  Maybe they
thought it would be nice to leave the VGN herald for nostalgia.   Anybody
have an explanation? Too bad we don't have a photo of the whole car.

Once upon a time there was someone out there in N&W land who wanted to see
this photo.  I can't remember who it was not.  Anyway, I have attached it
here for the viewing pleasure of anyone interested.
It was taken October 1996, and features a Virginian gondola that was still
in service at the time.  It had a load of signal scrap in it from the
Pulaski District.  The equipment came from the section between Pulaski and
Ben Blevins
