I've got a 24 pack of TILX on order, because:

Between these and the UPS/FedEx trailers from Trainworx, it's shaping up to be a very expensive holiday season.   :scared:   :lol:

Any suggestions on back dating these bad boys? Obviously removing the end shields is the first step. Then what?

Some basic research provided the following information:
1.  The Union Tank Car Company (UTLX)  started manufacturing funnel flow type tank cars in 1967. (Not sure of the designation possibly DOT 111).
2.  Trinity Industries  purchased the Thrall Car Manufacturing Company in 2001 and became Trinity Rail Group, LLC (TILX)

I'm sure someone can give you more detailed information but this is a start.
