In the late 1960’s, there was demand for a smaller, versatile tank car that could fit onto smaller sidings and spurs. Aptly nicknamed, “Shorty” or “beer Can” for its diminutive size, the car is based off of an ACF® design. At the time, larger tank cars were being ordered, but there was enough demand for a smaller tank car that could meet the needs of ship- pers with smaller sidings and weight limits on tracks. Usually these tank cars saw service hauling corn syrup, oils, and other heavy liquids. In addition to the unique paint schemes applied to the cars, they would look great in single shipment service or in a block of 3 heading back to the processing plant.
