ACF type 27 8K Navy, Gas & Supply Co. (CTTX) reweigh questions.

Mr. Hendrickson,

Is there a UTLX car number list including the truck type they've
received between 1947 & 1960 (if known)?
If so, where to find it?

Perhaps a strange/dumb question........
Is there prove whatsoever that some cars (for instance the Proto
2000 type 21 tank cars [UTLX?])
never received the ARA/AAR trucks, but still had the arch bar
trucks in mid 50's?
Arch bar trucks were banned in interchange in 1940. Here and there, a
tank car might have survived as late as the mid-'50s with arch bar
trucks, but only in company service (and even that is unlikely). All
cars in revenue service were required to have cast steel truck side
frames after 1940, whether Andrews or Vulcan with separate journal
boxes or ARA/AAR with integral journal boxes.
