Re: 1927 ORER

Quite sure about the purchase of 35 - 8000 gallon cars in 1927 and the LINX reporting marks appear to have been associated only with Lincoln Oil Refining in 1927, or shortly after.  The ORER's that I can't seem to find...
 
I am trying to piece together the rest of the story.
 
Thanks,

Steve,  are you sure UTLX purchased these cars?   The LINX reporting marks now belong to GE Railcar Services and are part of the NATX North American Tank Car Lines

I am trying to trace some Lincoln Oil Refining Company tank cars that were purchased by UTLX in 1927.  I don't see Lincoln, or its reporting marks LINX in the October 1926 ORER and it doesn't show in 1930, either.
 
I would appreciate if anyone could share any Lincoln Oil Refining ORER info from any time in 1927 or later.  Lincoln was located in Robinson, Illinois and was a predecessor of Marathon, which still operates a refinery there.
 
Thanks in advance.
