Here are some possibilities:
Plano nos. 303 and 305
Atlas no. 8820000141 Safety Rail set
A definite possibility:
Tangent Scale Models (tank dome platform) - no number
This may be a candidate, if modified:
Precision Scale no. 3576
See Tony Thompson's blog on modifying the Athearn part (similar to the PSC part) - http://modelingthesp.blogspot.com/2014/05/upgrading-tank-car-dome-platforms.html
I don't know if the Athearn part can be obtained from Athearn, but look for part no. 15512 for the platform (plastic) and 15513 for the railing (bent steel wire) Others in this group may have that information.
Tyco, at one time, had such a part, similar in size to the Athearn part - part. no. 4117.
