Re: Tank Car Loading...Maybe

       We know that a number of states used to prohibit bottom unloading, others permitted it. So as a modeler, you need to find out what the rules were for the state you model. California did permit bottom unloading and many photos are consistent with that. A number of Midwestern states required top unloading and photos support that.
