Re: Molasses in Tank Cars in the 1950s

Wayne Wesolowski had an article on scratchbuilding a truss-sided "sugar tank car" in the March 1982 RMC.  It definitely would have been an industry-owned car rather than one owned by a railroad.  The truss sides make it a very eye-catching car.  Don't know if it was for molasses or liquid sugar as I am at work and don't have the article here.
