Re: chlorine cannister flats (was Virginia Chemical Tank Cars)


Here's one.  Shipper would have been Frontier Chemical, which at the time was a division of Vulcan Materials, now Oxy (Occidental Chemicals).

This car is unmarked, but that's not necessarily indicating whether or not it was on lease.  I'd say it was certainly possible that the cars could have moved empty sometimes, but more than likely a loaded car went to a customer with full containers and returned with empty containers from the last shipment.
