Trying to determine if the AOX car ever delivered to the Santa Fe.

   Good question, Tom, but certainly not in the early days. SP was part owner and one might doubt they would want to sell to Santa Fe. But that all ended in the 1920s. Would be interesting to know who Santa Fe bought fuel from. By the 1930s, SP was very friendly with what became Chevron, but I've been told that whenever there was a disagreement about price, SP would buy from others until Chevron came around.
