Re: FSA/OWI photos - Omaha 1938, 1941


In the first American Smelting photo, I see a gon with sheet metal trucks.  I am very surprised.

Regarding the "pickle tank", there ARE tank cars listed for KCS in the January 1939 ORER.  Of particular interest here are the two cars 23531 and 23674, both listed as vinegar tank cars.  No gallonage is listed.  Overall length is 42'-10"--no heights listed.
