In the 1955 tank car tariff it shows Sinclair had several 2-compartment tank cars, but most were 6,000-gallon cars and the remainder were 5,000-gallon cars. This one is much bigger and looks to me to be in the 8,000 to 10,000 gallon range. I wonder what a tariff from a time closer to when the photo was taken would show.

That first car on the 2nd track is an interesting 2 dome car. The domes are large and the car seems longer than most. SDRX ???, two ladders but no platform on this side.
