Re: More tank car number series help

Clark, from the below website the CWTX reporting marks were first used in 1955, after your 1954 modeling era.
I also have this IC setout list, dated June 11, 1959, which shows one of the CWTX tankcars loaded with lard. These are Armour cars, so very possible this train contained cars from Deckers in Mason City.

Subject: [STMFC] More tank car number series help
My only printed ORER is the NMRA 53 version. I do have a few Westerfield CDs, but they do not contain all the private owner cars.
I’ve got my roster done now except for these two tank cars CWTX 3213, 3216. Would really appreciate info on these cars.
