Re: Crystal Car Line

From an old email I gather these red CCLX tank cars were extremely
rare or non-existent by the mid 1950's (i.e. had been repainted by
that time period)? Is that right?

All of the CCLX shots I've seen are for the "Corn Products" company.

Bill, I'm sending you off-list a B/W photo of a red CCLX type 30 tank
car. The photo is B/W but clearly shows the black underframe and
bottom sheet and the red upper tank, dome, and ends. It's a J. W.
Brauner shot at Buffalo in 1941 from the Frank Peacock collection.
