Um Tim,

That is a completely different car, both with respect to the under frame and the tank. The photo you posted appears to be a Pennsylvania Tank Car Company product. Careful examination would seem to indicate an original tank and under frame combination. Spotting features at the safety valves at opposite ends of the dome, 5 radial courses, and under frame with sills (which looks very much like a GATC product).

Regards,

Has this one received a different underframe? It's 1966, 50 years after the build date.
