Re: AC&F tank "types" was ACF's market share

Actually Bruce, only P2K nailed the underframe. Intermountain's
is very screwed up.

Another thing...I looked through the WHOLE book waiting for a tank car
to be identified as "Type 21" or "Type 27" and then, at the very end,
Ed explains that the "Type" only applied to the FRAMES and not the
car...another myth shattered. Of course, it makes sense when you read
the captions...80xx gallon, 80yy gallons, yada yada yada...So
basically, the whole LL/IM thing is correct, but only insofar as the
designation is applied to the frame and not the tank.

Befuddled as always
