Re: Photo: Imperial Oil Tank Car 7044 (1937)

Thanks for finding this photo Bob, it seems to be one I haven’t seen from Library and Archives Canada.

IOX 7044 was actually built by AC&F in the fall of 1920, and reweighed in 3/1937. Following acqusition of the Imperial Oil fleet by UTLX Canadian subsidiary Products Tank Line of Canada (later Procor) at the end of 1952, this car would be renumbered UTLX 26423, and would serve into the 1970s.

The lettering style was adopted by Imperial Oil in 1930 (with some variations), and examples could be found into the 1950s.
