Sinclair Refining Tank Cars


Bob Lucas
 

Note that tank car car counts for several large independent refiners
dropped off significantly in the post-war years. Curious, though,
about Sinclair Refining, which still owned 4,964 cars in 1954.
Working with Al Westerfield's ORER on CD, I can only track down 336
ARA-II and ARA-III cars with FMTX (Sinclair Cuba Refining) reporting
marks. What happened to the (SDRX, UNPX, PARX) others? Were these
sold by Sinclair to one of the leasing firms? Bob Lucas
