That is a magnificent picture and it really enlarges nicely; thank you for sharing, Claus.  Are those “steps” on the Proctor and Gamble tank car strap en lieu of a ladder?

When enlarged the details for this car are really sharp:

 

Photo is annotated as taken on 12-1-1917, so the car belongs to the Mobile & Ohio, NOT GM&O as it doesn't exist yet.  GM&O was incorporated in 1937 for the merger of the Mobile & Ohio and Gulf, Mobile & Northern.  The merger was completed on September 13, 1940.
