Armand, whether there were ladders on both sides of tank cars depended,
of course, on whether there were dome walkways or platforms on both
sides, as there was no point in having a ladder that didn't go
anywhere.
Tell that to that lady in San Jose who built that crazy house with doors that opened to a solid wall, stairs to nowhere and hidden rooms. Of course...she did live in California.

Tank car builders provided one walkway and one ladder as
standard (almost always on the left side). Right side walkways and
ladders were optional;
For the benefit of some members perhaps not as enlightened as me <g>...how does one determine the right side from the left?
