Re: Ownership Of Tank Cars In 1950

Fred Jansz

Thank you for that list Ian.
It's weird to see WP still has the ten 1906-built (that was before WP was actually in operation starting 1909!) tank cars on the roster.
Cars that in real life (in 1955) probably were long gone, certainly as revenue cars.
When I add these 10 cars and deduct the 5 off roster cars; yes, WP had 215 tank cars, I agree.
However, all books and info I have, including the 1950 ORER, mention these tank cars were in MW or out of service by 1955.
Why these -except 5- still are in the TCC list is a miracle to me.
Thanks again for the info.
