Service Oil Co. Tank Car No. 2198
Car built 1927
No. 2198 arrives at the
museum after donation
by Cities Service in 1984.
We have very little information on CSOX No. 2198. The car was
in May 1927 for the Cities Service Pipeline Co. It ended its
days with the company by providing diesel storage at a Citgo Petroleum
facility in the Houston area. The company donated the car to the
Gulf Coast Railroad Museum in 1984.

On December 31, 2002, the car left the museum on a flatbed
for the Union Tank Car Co. shop in Cleveland, Texas. Just a few
later, the car returned, gleaming with a new coat of paint and other
courtesy of Union Tank Car. Our thanks to Union Tank Car and all
of its Cleveland shop employees for taking on this project!
