US refineries in the 40s
Since I have four refineries in the territory that I model, they, and the refineries that they get their feedstock from or send it to are of interest to me. Also, a lot of product was shipped to the Pacific during WWII, providing additional interest in the origin of the tank cars. Stimulated by a post on the STMFC list, I obtained and transcribed the USDI Bureau of Mines Information Circulars that bracketed the war years and transcribed them into a spreadsheet. I also added railroad information from the 1944 List of Open and Prepay Stations. I documented this in a blog post at US Refineries in the 40’s
There, you can find a link to Google Drive where you can download the spreadsheet and a PDF printout.
