I was wrong, pictured below is LV 62082

 
LV 62082 was classified with A.A.R. Mechanical Designation XMP.
 
The car was equipped with roof hatches and floor chutes for handling rock salt shipments.

So here is something I have never seen before..a LV tank car!  
numbered LV 10001.
The LV modelers site lists three LV tank cars, for cresote, but none with that number:
 
http://www.anthraciterailroads.org/lvrrmodeler/tankcars.htm
 
The photo is cropped from a larger image that shows the entire 4-8-2 number 5000.
5000 is wearing her later S-2 classification, which she received after being converted from 3-cylinders to two cylinders in 1939, which means this photo has to be between 1939 and 1948.
 
anyone ever seen any other photo of LV tank cars before?

That is a new one to me......would be interesting to find out "what the deal is" with this tank-car. Will do a little digging and poking-around on it.

All,
 
I've checked my copies of the ORER's and the 10001 is not listed. The 98001 (8,311 gallon capacity), 98002 (8,111 gallon capacity) and the 98003 (10,252 gallon capacity) first appear on the roster in 1927 and used for creosote hauling until 1944 when they're used for gasoline. 98002 & 98003 disappear from the ORER in 1950 and 98001 is in use until 1965.

If you look at that pic of 10001,The number on the end of the car,barely visible,doesn't look to be 10001..Maybe this number is capacity,ETC..Can't see half the car,it could even be a plow,ETC..

A total of 6 cars were converted and outfitted with chains and binders for lumber shipments. The first 3 cars were placed in service in 1962, 3 more in 1963 and only 1 car remained on Conrail day.

Wow.......look at that bend in the frame of that flat-car. I'm guessing it was "slightly" over-loaded!!

Iím finishing up a Sunshine model of a LV 6000-60499 series boxcar. †Besides the attached which was in the kit, there is a photo in Archerís book of one of the cars around 1937. †
 
Does anyone have a photo of one of them in the later 1940-1950's lettering scheme? †I don't think they were lettered the same as the better known left hand opening door cars ???
