From Ed Hawkins's article in RP CYC 10, pp 76-105, on multi-compartment ACF Type 27 tank cars: twin-compartment tanks typically had two ladders, either centered on the car directly opposite each other, or diagonally opposite (one even with each dome). It would be highly unusual for a twin-compartment car to have three ladders, not to say some oddity didn't.
