Re: F&C Twin Milk Tanks on West Coast Bay Area


The color of the tanks may help. In chemical service they tended to be orange or blue, less carefully painted with minimal markings since they were freight cars in that context. In milk service they were better kept often with milk company names on them and almost always in passenger consists.

Subject: [STMFC] F&C Twin Milk Tanks on West Coast Bay Area

While watching Pentrex's Cab Forward video, I saw a NCL tank milk car in the train filmed in the bay area.

I don't think milk would have been shipped from the east to the west coast, and I can't recall any milk shipments on the west coast, so I'm I correct to assume that this may have been a Borden Chemical shipment, glue perhaps?

The tanks had no markings on them and the flat was a National Car Line.

Any info would be helpful. Thanks.
