Steve Hile responds about UTLX X-3 tank cars with:

"It certainly appears that in the early design the 8000 and 10000
gallon cars seem to have shared a common underframe while the 6500
gallon car was "shorter" (truck centers closer together.) So the tank
diameter for the 8000 gallon car was less than the 10000 gallon car."

Or come look at the real thing, take pics, measurements, answer questions.

UTLX 17222 is preserved at the Illinois Railway Museum.
