UTLX 96720 would have been part of a group of cars ordered in 1951 but not completed until 1953, so weren’t listed in the Jan 1952 roster, which can be seen in the files section of this group.
I probably should have included this information into the roster in the UTLX book, so it was an oversight on my part.
Here are three more lines that could be included into Appendix 2
96412 – 96461 11,000 Z5-300 ACF 1951 50 50 Lot 3748. Completed 6-14-52. Commercial design
96462 – 96712 11,000 X5-300 Graver and Whiting 1952 251 251
96713 – 96949 11,000 X5-300 Graver and Whiting 1952 237 236 Completed 4-17-53
Bottom line is, no, 96720 is not the Atlas model, it is a UTLX design car with a tank built by Graver and the car assembled at UTLX, Whiting, Indiana.
Hope this helps.
Does UTLX 96720 look like an ACF built tank car? Is it the same as the Kadee model?

Bob and all;
I see two Skelgas and at least three other (one being a UTLX), what look like ICC-105-300’s, almost certainly in compressed gas service. Is there a production area in the vicinity?
