USAX 10,000 gallon ACF Type 27's

John Hile

Hello All,

I am trying to determine what paint and lettering scheme(s) the former USQX 10,000 gallon ACF Type 27 cars (like the Intermountain kit) wore circa 1952-53 after aquiring USAX reporting marks at the start of that decade.

Did the upper portion of the tanks remain silver or were they repainted black? What was the lettering font and layout? Did these cars carry the logo seen on new black tank cars of the era - i.e. ICC103W's?

Thanks in advance,

John Hile
