At the risk of incurring wrath for non-steam era content, the popping in and
out was due to reporting marks being added and eliminated due to changes in
corporate ownership of Wanda, i.e., from a private company to a subsidiary
of Ashland, to a division of Ashland, to a division of Dow, to a subsidiary
of Dow, etc., etc. See: <> for specific on
the LEYX marks.

Research on steam era marks may reveal the same pattern on other marks.

Thanks for the help with researching this company (sorry
about your knees, Dave). Well, since Richard has a photo
of a Wanda Petroleum car with GATX reporting marks dating
from 1963, we know that the company was in existence at
least that far back. It's looking more and more like a
post-steam era outfit, though. Odd that it seems to pop
in and out of view during various years.
