There is not a heck of a lot to go on for your questions. Believe me, I have looked!
UTLX got 125 eight and ten thousand gallon high walkway cars from ACF circa 1910 and there is every likelihood that they ran into the 1920’s, at least. However, UTLX did a major renumbering effort in the mid teens and these cars lost their numbers as, by the 1919 tariff, those 137xx numbers are something else, smaller. ORER info for UTLX in that era is scant, too. If I were doing the car for 1920, I would probably use a 7xxx series number.
UTLX purchased the PAX cars in 1929, but I could locate nothing further about them as UTLX cars.
I would advise you to buy a UTLX book, but Speedwitch still appears out of stock. There is not much more in the book that what I have share here, however, for your specific questions.
