Photo: Tanks Cars At Dow Chemical (Circa 1950s)


This one is a 10,000 gallon Dow car, but otherwise shows off the lack of side and end sills of the Type 26:

Aside from that, the car has the typical mid-late 1920s AC&F construction traits: ladder stiles twisted 90 degrees and wrapped over the handrail, the handrail and platform brackets attached to the tank bands, the tank saddle having two outward flanges, and the corner grabs attached just inboard of the end dome rivet pair.
