Photo: More TCWX Tank Cars: (1931)

TCWX 115 looks to be a fairly standard AC&F Type 17, with some work on the dome to accommodate the cargo. TCWX 119 is a pre-1917 GATC tank (as is 122 behind it). The dome platform, ladder, center tank anchor, and two straps at the tank bolsters are later modifications. The poling pockets at the outer ends of the top archbar are original, though. I expect that the Lennig tanks were secondhand purchases modified for acid service.
