I thought that I mentioned date in , date out information for Equipment Registers. Built in 1928 out of the Register on 1935. I am guessing that the car made a load or two and then went into storage until scrapping. Tom

Subject: Re: [RealSTMFC] PSPX car in what service?
I'm not sure I understand. Was this car being used to transport cylinders ... or whatever
was -in- the cylinders?
I suspect this car was not in service for very many years - that it would have been
replaced by a tank car quite soon after it went in to service ... sort of a "proof of
concept" approach to transporting propane/what ever by rail.
Does any one have a date for when tank cars first started being used for propane/etc.?
