Thank you for the answer.

From which year on came this cartype on the tracks?
In the form shown, never. The dome is too small. But it is
based on the 1928 cars built by General American for Southern
with a capacity of 12,500 gallons, standard for SP but rather
in the North American tank car fleet.
If the dome height is raised and other details improved,
model can be quite a good SP tank car. For UTLX and other lettering
schemes offered by Athearn, not in general. Union Tank did have
big tanks like this, but not of this design.
