Yes, LP gas would have been a better term. My fictional SacramentoLP gas rapidly became popular following World War II as a household and
industrial fuel in rural areas which were not served by natural gas
pipelines; that's why so many ICC-105s were built new in the late '40s
and early '50s. And most regional distributors received it by rail.
BTW, however, I have a photo of a California Despatch Line ICC-105
which was not in LP gas service but was used to haul anhydrous ammonia,
so not all ICC-105s carried propane and butane.
