Re: Which tank cars?

Further to the AGCX ownership comments:

My 7/1923 ORER shows the AGCX reporting mark as belonging to the Akin Gasoline Co., from 7/1937-1/1950 to the Ohio Tank Car Co., from 1/1952-7/1960 to the Vendome Tank Car Co.; and in 7/1960 it was transferred to the North American Car Corporation until being eliminated in 4/1975. So although Richard Hendrickson has stated correctly that as of 1950 Vendome had nothing to do with Akin Gasoline cars, that had obviously changed by early 1952. I have some more ORERs here to refer to and could probably refine those dates a little if anyone was interested.
