If I am reading Richard’s article correctly, and looking at the BLI website, I come up with the following dates for the BLI paint schemes.
Columbia Southern car paint scheme is good from 1953.
Great Western Dow Chemical is not shown in the article.
Ethyl Corporation Gray w/Black and Yellow Logo paint scheme is good from 1952-1970s
Ethyl Corporation Dark Gray with/Black Band is good from the 1970s onward (Photo in article is 1977).
Hooker As-Delivered Scheme is not as-delivered according to Richard. The as delivered was Black with red stripe down the middle. He does not mention this BLI scheme.
Hooker Billboard scheme is good from end of WWII. In another article and a post on this list he corrected the date to early as April, 1952.
Penn Salt paint scheme is good from “the 50s” with a photo showing 2/55.
Stauffer Chemical photo is not shown in the article.
UTLX paint scheme is not shown in the article.
I hope some of our tank car specialist will chime in on these dates.

I just found my copy of a September 2004 RMJ article that Richard Hendrickson wrote about the 6000 gallon pressure tank cars used for chlorine and in there he states that the orange and black scheme appeared after WWII, so my earlier statement was clearly off. He also has a photo of the black and red scheme that Hawkins describes, dated 1938.
