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

Besides water treatment, these cars also would have delivered chlorine to paper mills. Attached is a photo of an unidentified chlorine TMU car at the Consolidated Papers mill in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin during the early 1960s. One car is visible in the center, along with 2 rows of chlorine cylinders on "ground racks" behind the Quonset hut. Note the more modern GATX chlorine car to the right. This mill produced magazine-grade papers. Photo by H. Weldon McGee.
