The three compartment car appears to have been a 6,000 gal
single compartment car converted to three compartments. Such
conversions were fairly common (more often, though, on 8,000 gal.
cars), especially on GATX cars.

How would they do that? I suppose they could take off the heads and slide the new ones inside the shell, but my guess is that the inside was far from a perfect cylinder which would make "sliding" heads in and getting a good circumferetial seal very difficult.
