Re: Tank Car help Identification

From the ends of the tank body and the end sills I believe this is a UTLX pressure tank, a late model X-5 built in the early '50s.  Similar to the ACF cars Atlas and Kadee but with detail differences.  Closer to the Kadee because it should have Apex running boards.

As delivered the paint job was grey.  The car shot on the South Shore in 1970 appears to be a repaint.
