Many thanks, Rupert, but I don't model the war years but shortly thereafter. Understandbly that during the war many of the only system-wide used cars came into the pool for nation-wide use to ease an speed-up traffic.
 
Many greetings

There is a note in the 1943-1945 ORER’s in respect of all CB&Q (and presumably other companies’) company service tank cars -

“Cars in series 230000-231601 are temporarily assigned to commercial service and are on mileage basis effective March 1, 1943 as covered by A. A. R. Circular T-117-L.”

So, if you were modelling this period ………

Johannes,

 

That car would really probably only be appropriate for someone modeling MKT.  Railroad owned tanks cars rarely if ever made it off line.  They were typically in some sort of company service, although a small number were used in commercial interchange service.
