Re: Vinegar Cars

Tom and Dave,

I spotted a wooden vinegar tank on the SP at Oakland, California, around 1975. No picture, sorry. I was
zooming by on the #17 freeway.

Kind regards,

Data point: ca. 1940, Gregory-Robinson-Speas in Rogers,
Arkansas shipped 3,000,000 gallons annually in wooden
tank cars to the South and Southwest.

ca. 1965, I _think_ I remember seeing a wooden tank car
near Clyborn station on the C&NW.
