Re: Phillips Petroleum LNG and PPG gas tank cars.

Perhaps the tangent insulated tank car could be a starting point for a LNG car as in this article featured years ago on the Resin Car Works blog.

As to where the cars were going; well, north of Newport was basically Canada so these cars were going to industries there. I'd be interested in hearing otherwise but in the late 40s there wouldn't have been much production of LNG and LPG going on in Canada.
