Re: Semet-Solvay-Allied Chemical history?




There lies the issue with a group that each member has his "own era modeled" that is different from many of the others' interests.  My narrow era of interest for the C&O Rwy spans 1868 thru 1965.  We do seem to have more images of "generic black" tank cars in area of the Semet-Solvay and Ashland Oil facilities near Ashland and Russell, KY, randomly popping up in yard shots.
