Re: 1927 ORER

Steve and Barb Hile
 

Quite sure about the purchase of 35 - 8000 gallon cars in 1927 and the LINX reporting marks appear to have been associated only with Lincoln Oil Refining in 1927, or shortly after.  The ORER's that I can't seem to find...
 
I am trying to piece together the rest of the story.
 
Thanks,
Steve Hile

Steve,  are you sure UTLX purchased these cars?   The LINX reporting marks now belong to GE Railcar Services and are part of the NATX North American Tank Car Lines

I am trying to trace some Lincoln Oil Refining Company tank cars that were purchased by UTLX in 1927.  I don't see Lincoln, or its reporting marks LINX in the October 1926 ORER and it doesn't show in 1930, either.
 
I would appreciate if anyone could share any Lincoln Oil Refining ORER info from any time in 1927 or later.  Lincoln was located in Robinson, Illinois and was a predecessor of Marathon, which still operates a refinery there.
 
Thanks in advance.

John are you saying LNE PS-1s in total weren’t used in interchange or just the BX ones? I have photos of them on the Pennsylvania Middle Division. I’m at work so I can’t check the pics for numbers.

That sounds semi-logical since LNE picked up 8 PS-1s after their initial order of 300 from PS (in 1956, I believe).  However, 5 of the PS1s left the Susquehanna ORER roster BEFORE January 1954 (there are only 30 cars on that roster).  I don't have a 1954 passenger ORER so don't know if the Susquehanna moved them to the passenger roster (i.e., reclassified as BX), or what.  The cars were not used in interchange service, so I don't know why they were in the ORER to begin with.

Re: 1927 ORER

FTX appears to have been rather short-lived.  It is not in the 1919 tank-car tariff book.  Ian Cranstone's on-line tabulation suggests that it first appeared in an ORER in 1920.  As Claus said, it was around in 1926.  It does not appear in my 1930 ORER.

So, pillar to post, maybe a decade for FTX.

I have yet to find any trace whatsoever of LINX.

Re: NYS&W 400 series PS1 Boxcars

Ed:

P.S.  Actually that does make sense, now that I think about it.  Susquehanna did use some of the PS1 cars as BX with steam and signal lines added. So taking them off of the freight roster jives.  Then if they sold them to LNE in the late '50s they would be gone for good.  And,  most importantly, the numbers do add up!

These are new to me. I don't recall much discussion of wood tank car to carry, I assume, salt in water solution. Obviously built by Hauser-Stander Tank Company Cars of Cincinnati, Ohio

Can others provide some background?

Park & Pollard insulated boxcar

Wayne Slaughter <wrs642@...>
 

Looking for information about Park & Pollard (PRKX, P&P Car Line) class RB steel underframe, ventilated refrigerators used to ship bagged feed. I know they appeared frequently in New Hampshire on the B&M in the transition era undoubtedly hauling in chicken feed. There is a mention and a partial photo in a Dwight Smith article in the B&M bulletin.

Four groups of cars (400-499, 600-699, 700-799, 800-899) appear in the ORER 1953, my era.

Looking to add one to the Dominion & New England roster. From Dwight's B&W photo I'm guessing they were boxcar red with white lettering. 

Any and all help appreciated!

Regards
