Re: Wrecked car with interior details from 1948

  Definitely a milk tank car of the BMT classification and most likely of 6,000 gal. capacity by that year 
with two 3,000 gal. tanks as Dennis describes. If yhou look above the reefer doors you can see the vent
door with its sliding cover that allowed it to be openedso the filler piping could enter the car through it.
Almost looks like and Sealtest car but I need to check my material to be sure.

Cordially, Don Valentine
