Ehrrr... if this was a four course car, it would have horizontal lap seam in the upper quadrants of the sides, like the much maligned Gould/Tichy tank car. With a central top seam, that indicates two upper sheets and a floor sheet.


Thanks, Dennis.  I was going to point that out as well.  UTL X-3s all had three horizontal course tanks, with the exception of a very few short 8K gal. cars built very early (ca. 1917) in the history of the X-3 design.
