While not specific DL&W, this is a rather interesting scene from a time
when individual tank cars would be spotted at various independent
dealers. At the time there were hundreds of small oil companies and many
had their own tanks such as the Hercules shown.

Besides the obvious behemoths (UTLX, GATX, SHPX and Sinclair), I'm
wondering what regional private companies (primarily oil) would have
appeared on the DL&W. Google searches are not coming up with much help.
