Thanks Ed! Here's another CLX car, obviously smaller, but it
shows a variation of the early
Cities Service lettering.

Hi List Members,
SHPX 161 two compartment tank in 1950 (possibly
1152 was a quantity of 10 "Type 28 Modified,” ICC-103,
10,000-gallon capacity, 2-compartment, CLX 2270-2279, built
7-30. The underframe lacked having the customary
rolled-channel 7” side sills from the bolsters to end sills
& 9” end sills of the Type 27 design. It’s noted that the
wreck tore off the entire underframe end structure at both
ends, which I can only wonder if the Type 27 underframe might
have withstood this damage.
tank car tariff denoted SHPX 158-160, 162, and 164-166 (7
cars) as having a nominal tank capacity of 10,000 gallons and
each dome 124 gallons. With just 161 & 163 lacking from a
continuous series 158-166, it’s apparent that SHPX received 9
of the original 10 cars.
it’s of interest, attached is the sample ACF builder of CLX
2270. In the 1936 tank car tariff book, all 10 cars were
these cars into perspective, these 10 cars were the only
10,000-gallon, 2-compartment, either ARA III or ICC-103 tank
cars that ACF ever built. What might be called exceptions to
this rule were two TIDX special-design tank cars built in 1-23
(lot 9427) lacking any classification as the car was used for
fire foam service.
