UTLX “1926+ Lease” is one of two UTLX offerings in this production run: an “early” and a “later” car. Union Tank Car Company’s UTLX lease fleet was comprised of tank cars from a variety of builders, including several large orders for GATC tank cars. Numbering in the thousands, this fleet was part of the backbone of the large Standard Oil-owned fleet and are very relevant cars for those that need UTLX tanks – and more statistically relevant than the ACF prototypes you probably already have on your layout now (sorry, but it is true). These nationwide service cars include a 1926 paint date on the side of the car, appropriate and era-correct UTLX stenciling, and an era-correct K brake system. This UTLX lease scheme is available in twelve road numbers.
