General American built a number of similar steel milk cars
for Pfaudler. Overland imported three of them in brass -- two
40' cars and a 47' car. The most common style was a 40' car
with a rounded bottom sill, which was produced (although not
as well) by Intermountain.
GPEX 1021 is preserved at the Illinois Railway Museum, where it was occasionally used as a niftily disguised "canteen" for the steam operation. The car interior contains two tanks that fill the majority of the car, with a small central room where the loading / unloading connections can be made in a clean environment. In canteen service, the museum installed a transfer pump in this room.
