By the way, TCWX 119 was 6,660 capacity and TCWX 123 was the same. Between them at #121 was a 4,000 gallon car.

I don't have a 1931 ORER, but my January 1938 ORER says TCWX is for Charles Lennig & Co. only. At that point they had 18 tank cars, varying from 4,000 to 7,500 gallons capacity. All were TA acid tanks.

Schuyler,

Yes, I got it. I had the image open on my desktop and so couldn't see his post. Curiously, once I opened the image in large size, I couldn't get back to the smaller one.

Still wondering if the TCWX reporting mark only belonged to Charles Lennig & Co., or was the mark also used for other manufacturers leasing cars in the TCWX fleet. A 1931 ORER should explain.

Yours Aye,

Bob,
 
And who, pray tell, owned the TCWX reporting mark? That mark isn't listed in my 1957 ORER. Because of the angles, I can't read the name on the cars' sides.
 
Those three tank cars are all really neat. They are presumably acid cars, and each one different. I love the little 0-4-0T in the first photo.
 
 
Yours Aye,
