On the Bachmann tankcar thread there was a link to tankcar's in the wine industry . That link has this shot as well as others . Looks like it wasn't that rare of a car in that area .

While your on the subject of tank cars.  In one of the PRR books I have there is a photo of a domeless tank car behind electrics.  Can't seem to find any other photos of these and was wondering what they carried.

THAT is amazing. Dome city! What's also amazing is how "late" this was. The bloody-nose PAs and the cars in the background place the scene in the early 1960s.

I think this a great example of a commodity that moved entirely to trucks in a very short transition and became invisible.

Indeed; looks like one could release a new tank car style each month for a year.

Looks like safe gasses like Argon .
