The October 1948 ORER lists cars numbered from 5 to 364 totaling seven cars in the General American section with the SKX reporting marks. They're listed with a 30 ton capacity. I guess that gives us two more numbers to use.

Subject: [STMFC] Spencer Kellog & Sons SKX tank cars.
I am working on a SC&F cast resin Standard Car Co. 6 course tank car
to be lettered for the Spencer Kellogg & Sons vegetable oil refiners
in Buffalo. Can anyone tell me about this company? My relevant
ORERS, 1926, 1943, 1952, 1958 apparently do not list this company,
nor its SKX reporting marks. I thus presume that this company must
have existed during the 1930s- or .....?.
The only dates that I can read on the ultra fine decals enclosed in
the kit are a build date of 1920, and some repack/reweigh dates in the
1950s. I cannot read the dates on the tank car photo.
Does anyone know whether or not Spencer Kellogg had any other tank
cars besides #231?
