Re: UTLX Type 21 tank cars

Richard Hendrickson was kind enoungh to share several photos for this combination with me in the past. The specific numbers included

56022 (Contain type L heaters.)

The first two numbers did not exist in the 1952 roster, so it is unclear when they were acquired by UTLX.

56022 would appear to be part of a block

56000 - 56122

most of which had the type L heaters, all of which were 10,000 gallon cars.

I hope this helps.

Subject: [STMFC] UTLX Type 21 tank cars

Lasses and Fellas,
I went on an airbrushing binge today. Since I knew I was going to spray a bunch of black, I built a P2K Type 21 10k gal tank car(undec). Since it is now resplendantly glossy black, I searched my stash and came up with only UTLX decals. Is there an easy referance that can get me to a correct # for one or two UTLX Type 21 10k tank cars?

I have the Champ "Sun Oils" set but am not sure of this sets veracity...
