Truncate the link to https://mohistory.org/collections/ and search all collections. Found a few CB&Q items searching on “Burlington” and there are many more under the more generic “Railroad”.
According to Ian Cranstone’s reporting marks list, New England Alcohol used NEAX reporting marks from 1935 to 1947.
In a 1938 ORER they had a whopping total of 7 cars and by 1945 it had climbed to 9!
Cool photo ! The frame has a 1912 stencil but the tank appears to have a 1928 stencil.
I never knew a private reporting mark could be 5 letters. :-\

That's a great two-fer! A Pennsy X25 box car and a classic Autocar truck!
The X25 cars were the first steel-sheathed box cars for the Pennsy. Almost 10,000 were built between 1915 and 1919.
