With the onset of World War I, the United States Railroad Administration (USRA) was faced with the possible shortage of raw materials to construct desperately-needed rolling stock. In an effort to decrease construction time, provide a cost savings and simplify repair and parts supply, a group of seven standard freight car designs were created that could be built in large quantities. Over 20,000 composite gondolas were constructed during the war time.
