Re: Photo: Tank Car Outside Brewery (1913)

Hi List Members,
Entirely by coincidence, I came across some images of Indian Refining Co tank cars in the Barriger collection today... see links below:
One of the cars may have reporting marks IRCX 798, but hard to say for sure.
I have to say, it looks like a totally rag-tag collection of cars, many different types, only a few that match each other.

The tank car at the iron City Brewery -probably- has a 3-digit
number... perhaps 302 or 312;
There is an AC&F builders' photo of IRCo 309... (date unreadable),
an apparently identical car for the Indian Refining Company
of  Georgetown KY...
