Re: Red Caboose 103-W 10,000 gal..tank car

Ed only listed the cars built in 1949, because they are exactly like the Red Caboose model,
which is based on ACF drawings in the Car Builder Cyclopedia ( e.g. 1953 CBC, page 270 ).
ACF continued to build 103W cars for USAX such as these two (attached) cars built in 1955.

Thanks Tim, I did not carefully re-examine the photo earlier and had forgotten that one of them was riveted, but the nearer car appears to be welded. So could that be one of them?  Again, the number series is not the same as Ed's list.
