It also depends on the era, as new plants came on line in the 60's and later as the Govt privatized the He supply.

Subject: [STMFC] Helium car loading sites

 
Gentlemen:
Helium cars were loaded at, I believe, Hugoton, Kansas, on the Cimarron
Valley District. I do remember seeing empty cars at Boise City waiting to go
back for loading in 1977-78 when I was working on the Colorado Division.

Cordially,

John Hodson
 
John, they were also loaded at Amarillo (Rock Island) and Excel (AT&SF), TX.  Probably a number of other places where helium was abundant.  Jerry Michels
