Re: Mathieson Tank Cars (Caustic Soda)

Definitely not glass, and I am skeptical there were very many epoxy-lined cars in the steam era.  I can't find my copy of Kaminski with its handy table of commodities and car types, but I'm guessing caustic soda was largely handled in conventional steel cars, or in those lined with a nickel alloy.  I'm confident that the metallurgist among us will have a more definitive answer.  ;-)
