I have at least one of these kits, although I forget which number(s).I have builder's photos of three PMCX 8K gal. Type 21s: PMCX 109,
built in June, 1927; PMCX 156, built in Jan., 1928; and PMCX 716, built
in Dec., 1828. All had KC air brakes. PMCX 109 was delivered with
arch bar trucks; the other two cars had ARA cast steel trucks with
spring planks. PMCX 109 and 156 were stenciled "Holyoke, Mass." while
PMCX 716 was stenciled "Marrero, LA."
I also have a builder's photo of PMCX 568, an 8K gal. Type 27 built in
Nov., 1929, stenciled "North Milwaukee, Wisconsin." Obviously Paper
Makers Chemical had plants all over the place, though the 1920s ORERs
show their headquarters to be in Holyoke, MA.
