Attaching a photo I took in January 1962 of what appears to be the same tank car.  Rail has been removed on both sides of car and the car is stationary.

Well, seeing as to how the rail between the car and the rest of the line has been pulled up recently (at least as of the date of the photo), it may be safe to assume that the car is in true captive service.

A 1955 photo from Riley Triggs' Port of New York blog:

There are no markings on the car so perhaps it is in company service.

The photo is from the collection of Tim Stuy.
