Could the "T" mean "transit"? The 110 ton sounds about right for an RS
and the "diesel" desigantaion for cargo.............

I don't think we are looking at a car but at a diesel locomotive. Spokane,
Portland and Seattle Ry. Alco RS-3 #98 was built in November 1955 as builders
number 81702. Not sure about the T designation.

2009 and received a reply that there was no such number, as the SP&S tank cars
were in the 38000-series (see Message #79347). I then found a reference on the
SP&S Hist. Society's website for an Intermountain tank car decorated as
SP&S X-85. This led me to think that perhaps the car in Train LS7 was SP&S X-98,
although it seemed odd that such an "X" car would be so far from its home
