How is it you are able to make out the reporting
marks on an image scanned at 72DPI? The Fort Collins library photo scan leaves a
lot to be desired...

Thanks again. I looked in the Kaminski book when I got home and I
found the builder's photo on p. 66. Is that what you were referring
to? It's the same car, but a different photo, and a different paint
scheme. The Fort Collins library photo is an in-service photo with
billboard DIAMOND lettering. Cool to see the different schemes. I
think this will take you to the Fort Collins shot. It is printed
backwards, by the way (REDRUM - no, wait, that's not it. DNOMAID, yeah,

The Fort Collins (Colorado) Public
Library has a nice 1930-era photo of COSX 975, a three-dome tank car. I
don;'t have an ORER from that far back. Can anyone give me information
about the car? Builder (AC&F?)? Built date? Capacity? Any help is
COSX 975 was one of 2 cars
built 10-23 by ACF (lot 9643), series 975-976, 50 tons, 3 compartment, 10,000
gallons, ARA Spec. III. I believe the cars later went to SDRX.
photo was published in the ACF 100th year anniversary book by Ed Kaminski.
