Re: SHPX 161, a two compartment tank car

The 1970 tariff book shows sister car #160 3936 gallons + 5931 gallons (total 9867) with each dome @ 124 gallons.

Hi List Members,
Nice image of SHPX 161, a two compartment tank car.
I suspect this car may have been built originally as a three compartment car, based simply on the location of the two domes. Can anyone confirm (or deny) this to be the case?
The car looks o have a 1930 build date on it, on the right hand side of the tank
