WCHX (Walter C. Haffner Company) WCHX (Walter C. Haffner Company) in the black carbody with yellow lettering scheme. Walter Haffner operated a modestly sized lease fleet of general service non-insulated tank cars that could be seen nationwide, serving many different customers. These particular cars were built in 1941 but have small stenciling indicating a 1961 tank test date, which is when the prototype cars were repainted, meaning this is a good general service lease car for 1961-1970s modelers. This very attractive car is available in three road numbers.
