Re: molasses

Hi Clark,

The July 1992 "Model Railroader," page 100, included a drawing of an AC&F
Type 27 tank car lettered for blackstrap molasses service, GATX 7801 leased
to Harry L. Laws & Co. I'm familiar with the Laws molasses refinery because
it was still in operation on the New Orleans riverfront when I was in high
school and college, and the wind ocassionally carried its sickly sweet odor
over the uptown university area.

So long,
