Re: Texaco Tank Car Fleet in 1950

Sorry. I hit the wrong key. I have nothing solid to offer you, except that the silver Texaco cars date from the 1930s and were all black well before the 1950s.

Kind regards,

Hi guys,

Can anyone tell me what period Texaco used the black
tank cars with
White Thick Block lettering of "TEXACO"?
From when to when?

Were these tanks cars 8000 or 10,000 gallon?

Also if you were putting together a fleet of tank cars
for Texaco in
1950 which tank cars were most likely to be seen?

Plain GATX? Silver TEXACO? Still some labelled THE
just simply labelled TCX? And what size?

Thanks for your help in advance
