Re: Photo: Lincoln Oil Tank Car FTX 10073 (Circa 1925)

Yes, and there are several messages in the archives concerning the Federal Tank Line fleet.  And, as Jim Gates told us in one such message, its fleet of 740 cars was absorbed into GATX in 1926.

Those cars would be hard to track down buried within the enormous GATX fleet.  Especially so in that the FTX cars are not in the 1919 tariff, so there is no "fingerprint" of shell and dome volumes to go looking for,.
