Are these files of a type that can take comments?  If so, you
could try adding a file-local variable to each one, telling Emacs
to go to the end of the file.  Another possibility is to Customize
the "find-file-hook" to do what you want.  (Despite its name,
find-file-hook is a "List of functions to be called after a buffer
is loaded from a file."  [From the documentation.])

Hmm... Now that I think about it, I seem to recall someone on this
list asking if one could create a command-line option to do what
you're asking.  "emacs --exec (<go to eof>) filename", or
something like that.  Of course, it would only work with the
file(s) on the command line.  (If you were the one who asked that
question, I'm going to feel very silly.)

That's okay; while I do have the menu-bar active, I never use it
to go to the end or beginning of the file -- M-> is so much
simpler to type.  As for the <End> key, I've never used it.  :-)

I don't know if any of this will help, but maybe it will point you
in the right direction.
