Re: Photo: Tank Cars At Refinery
That is a UTL car but not the frameless "Van Dyke" or, if you wish to be more accurate "Type V" car. Rather, close examination of the car will show that it has a frame, so this is the UTL "Type X" car that the Roundhouse olde time tank car is somewhat loosely based on.
You are, of course, completely correct about the brake wheel being a characteristic of this generation of UTL built cars.

Steve, that was the typical arrangement on the Ban Dyke tankcars. Some still exist on the Cumbes & Toltec, albeit narrow gauged.
