Re: Photo: Oil Loading Rack


Wow.  Not a ladder in sight, going up to the domes.

The car on the left (I'm assuming UTLX 639 or 629) has a curious mid-car tank hold-down rig, that goes around the dome.  And a railing, instead of a handrail, along the tank.  I see at least two similar cars on the other track, and it appears they also have the goofy mid-car hold-down.

In 1926, there were 190 cars in the series 551-999.
