My point was that after 1904 all tank cars were built with steel underframes. Clearly some tank cars with steel underframes were built before that time.

I believe the steel underframe tank car goes back to
1893.

This model is very different from the car shown in the
photo. This model

looks to be a flat car that has had a tank placed on it.
This was not done

very often and the few times this approach was used it was
with narrow gauge

cars or in some cases for cars used in maintenance service.
Most early tank

cars had an underframe that was different from the ones used
on flat cars.

Another point to make is that after 1904 tank cars were
built with steel

underframes.
