Thanks Ed. My 1/53 ORER does show SUYX 101-301 as ICC105A300W at
11,000 gal capy. FWIW, Ian Cranstone's web site (www.nakina.net)
lists dates for SUYX reporting marks as 1/1952 to 7/1954, eliminated
Richard's July 2003 article in RMJ has an in-service shot of SUYX 292
from Bob's/Col. Chet McCoid. The photo date is given as 2/54.
Richard describes the paint scheme as: black underframe and bottom
shell with white lettering, while the top shell and ends were light
gray with red lettering.
I found one other photo of an Anchor LPG car in an NMRA book of clinic
presentations from the 1990 Pittsburgh Convention. Richard gave a
presentation on tank cars, and on p.102 is a photo of ANPX 2660 (Geo.
Sisk/C. Winters) with a built date noted as 1946, but no photo date.
This car appears similarly lettered to the ANPX 120, however, the
silver extends further down the side of the tank so that the "Anchor
Petroleum Co. Tulsa Okla." letters are black instead of white. The
photo reproduction is a little grainy, but there appears to be some
black along the bottom of the tank. ANPX 2660 has the smaller dome
platform, and what look like Barber S2 trucks to me...as opposed to
the A-3's on ANPX 120 and SUYX 292.
The 11,000 gal ICC105A300W's listed for ANPX in the 1/53 ORER are:
2480, 2490-2570, 2580-2590, 2630-2840, 2940-3060. Note that all cars
are numbered in multiples of ten.
I would appreciate any information you may have that would help me to
model one of these ANPX cars using the Atlas car I have.
Thanks in advance,
