I was looking at Richard Hendrickson's article on insulated tank cars
in the
Nov. 2005 RMJ and noted the 2 Texaco cars and the GATX former Texaco
car had
Dalman 2 level trucks. I know making generalizations on 3
photograph's is
dangerous but were Dalman trucks common on the Texaco cars?   Anyone
there have additional photo's of Texaco or GATX (former Texaco)
tank cars.
Several series of TCX cars ordered by Texaco from AC&F ca. 1929-1930,
both insulated and non-insulated, had Dalman two level trucks. I have
a number of photos besides the ones in the RMJ article.

Incidentally the GATX car is 37154, which is one of the number P2k
used on
their insulated tank cars that I picked up today. Looks like I'll
have to
add the steam coil attachment. Does anyone make an aftermarket part
for it?
No, but it you'll make a pattern for it and mold some in resin, I'd
sure like to get a couple!
