Jim L., Russ,
Thanks for the reassurance of the green tank cars. I thought I had seen them and may have photos from Stanley or Luray siding. However, I also remember seeing the gons with short vertical tanks.

>All of the black tank cars on NS today are fuel storage cars. We have had a couple at Buckeye Yard in the past. I use to see them also pass over the hump when I worked at that yard a few years ago. I also have seen the green cars. They were in the old NW camp trains. I haven't them in a while.
