Re: TMU Cars

TrainShed # 12 , Tank Cars 1922-1943, has a drawing of a Standard Steel Car
TMU (1925) and a couple of photographs.

I've a photo of a TMU by Jim Sands I downloaded that's dated 1967, but I
didn't note the source (likely Jim's site).

Suggest you do a search for the "Chlorine Institute" and/or chlorination for
details on these cylinders, which are still used in water and wastewater

Hope this helps,

Looking for sources of plans and photos for Tank Car Multiple Units used
to haul "1-ton" chlorine tanks. Also looking for info on the shape and size
of the tanks they hauled. Also curious when these types of cars went into
disuse or were prohibited from interchange.
