Yes, 6012. A 6,000 gallon ACF tank car, a loner - ONE of a series of ONE. :-)

That's a great website !

Here is another photo link from the Free Library of Philadelphia:
Click on the photo to enlarge it.
The three compartment tank car appears to be HMHX 6012. Two sources list the owner as Tank Car Corp. Of America.
Comment for the photo: "View of a vacated industrial plant. Location was the site of the Union Petroleum Company, circa 1910. Then the Sinclair Refining Company, circa 1942. Circa 1962 the location belonged to the Paint Manufacturing Company. Demolish date sometime after 1962."
