Re: Red Caboose 103W welded tankcar

Tim: My call of "probably" on the frame walkways was based on 1) the open rectangular grid walkways I've seen of all of the three 1970s-80s photographs I've seen of welded USAX and DODX tank cars where the deck is visible, and 2) the fact that the hardware and deck profile that can be observed from the side-on ACF builder's shot appears indiscernible from what you see in those later-year shots.

Best,
