The #916 gondola was offered in 1956 and 1957 and has two variations. One variation has capacity markings that read: "LT.WT. 52900" and "CU FT4316". The second variation has capacity markings as follows: "LT.WT. 52300" and "CU FT 4318". Photo #2 shows the same model in the background, with the foreground model being the one that Holt modified to match the prototype for these D&H cars in the mid-1950s. Hold used decals by Highball Graphics and Microscale, as well as dry-transfer numbers by Model Graphics. Flat clear lacquer sealed everything and provided a slightly weathered appearance. The D&H used road numbers #15900 through 15914, and #15950 through 15969 for its 35 gondolas modified for cement canister duty.
