Don't think I've ever seen one like this before.

Anyone know what it would haul?

ACRX stands for American Chrome and Chemicals, Inc. Pretty vague, I know, but its a start. The stenciling says not for flammable liquids. I can't otherwise make out the placard due to glare.
No farms, no food.

According to the notes someone left on one of the pictures of ACRX tank cars at the following URL: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/rsList.aspx?id=ACRX, they haul Chromic Acid.
Check out my website (listed under the web tag) for railfanning pictures from 32 states, D.C., and Ontario. Current locomotive count: 5772!

This was in one of the pics... they looked up the UN number "1463 corresponds to Chromium trioxide, anhydrous in the ERG"
