Very interesting photos. Thanks. Does anyone know the use of that little
arched pipe on the foremost tank car in the second photo? I think I've
seen this before in photos of TCX on cars in tar service.
Interesting name for the ship, "Alabama Maru". Could Alabama also be a
Japanese word? I would not be surprised if this ship ended up on the
bottom of some sound during WWII, perhaps carrying a different name.
