    Can anybody identify this car? I would like to know what the prototype was designed to haul. I would also like to know more about the model such as the manufacturer, part number, and approximate date of manufacture. Any possibility that ATSF actually had such a car in their fleet?

    I had a similar car that was made by Tyco. They called it a "propane tank" car. Came with molded propane tanks in between the bracing.
    Don't know if there was(is) a prototype though.

    "If it ain't broke......Get a bigger hammer"

    Reminds me of the alledged philosophy at Boeing Aircraft, "Hammer to fit, file to finish, paint to cover."
