To be fair to the people here who have always been most generous in
sharing information, there are many types of questions that have been
asked before and I am sure that they must be tired of answering them,
though they are generally very gracious about this.



What you must recognize however is that many records of the period have
been lost destroyed or hidden if the information was though worth
recording in the first place. This problem especially seems to affect
tankcars - tanks were owned by hundreds of different companies many of
which are long gone. So unless you can find a good photo of a specific
car at a specific time then you sometimes have to guess at the right
combination of trucks and other fittings.



However many of these photos are still copyrighted and cannot be freely
published - others are not and several of the list members have been
generous in sharing photos when they are able. Some can be seen at

The archives can be found by going to

oup/STMFC/messages



You can then enter search terms to find messages that contain the terms
you searched for, or if you are really keen you can read every message
in the archives.



There is also the Freightcars list which is more general. The list has a
searchable archive which has much useful information the most useful
steam era information is generally found in postings before the
formation of this list
