3 radial course. There is only one longitudinal course, the bottom one. This is typical radial course tank car construction. For example, the same is true of the 1917 GATC 5-radial course tank car (as modeled in HO by Tangent).

How do we describe this tank car? A three-course, three-course car? (three-course radial, three-course longitudinal)
