Re: Nalco Weed Sprayer and tank cars
Steve and Barb Hile
According to a 1966 ORER, Nalco owned 18 such cars numbered 101, 103-105 and 108-121. Here is a shot I found of 120 working on the Rock Island in Peoria.
The tank cars appear to be a mix in both shots including a UTLX car behind 120.
It is not clear when these cars were first used, but the NALCO name apparently arrived circa 1959 shortened from National Aluminite Company, according to Wikipedia.
