Covered Gondola? Someone explained one just like that before. My immediate thought was Covered Gondola, was right. Unless you mean something like the front half is box, the back is tank. That would be rather strange.

probably steel coil car

it could be any of the ones suggested,

you probably saw a covered gondola though if it had a gon bottom and curved top-
they're used to transport rolls of steel and that's why the curved top
basically unrideable and i thought i was gonna havta ride one on huron central rr once but luckily thought better

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
