In addition to his GDT #4 shay locomotive, Darel Leedy built a fleet of Gilpin inspired ore cars. Again, here are images and text provided by Darel in 2000.
I use Grandt Line On2 Gilpin small( early ) ore cars that I’ve modified into Sn2 large( late) ore cars. Shortening of these cars is necessary as well as some other detail modifications. I have only a half dozen of these made up right now, with about 30 more awaiting at the workbench. Someday I will scratch build the other rolling stock such as the coal cars, water cars, flats, plow and caboose.

At the time of this post Darel is modeling the C&S town of Dickey in Sn3.
