I'm trying to find the answer to a couple of questions on the
frameless tank
cars used by UTLX near the start of the 20th century and google isn't
helping.

What is the proper name for this design?
Did UTLX have some sort of class name they used for these?
Any info on on long these cars might have been in interchange service
(my
personal time period of interest is 1950).
And perhaps most important to me, what was a typical light weight for
these
cars?
