Re: Molasses tank car

Gene Green <bierglaeser@...>

Some of the lettering still shows but most is badly faded. Another
problem is that some lettering has been painted over and it isn't
always easy to know which layer is which.

The car is GATX 75654 built 6-55.

Yes, I took photos both Kodachrome and color print, the former with a
view towards eventual publication, the latter merely for details so
that my notes would make sense once I got home. I lost some interest
in the project when I discovered there'd been a tank swap. I haven't
been back since April of 2000 and no longer have access. I probably
could get access again.
