Union Tanks No. 55172 and 11058 were used for oil transport from 1939 and are seen at Colorado Railroad Museum at Golden Colorado on 15th June 2024. No. 55172 is marked Gramps as oil refinery owner Lafayette Hughes, moving oil from New Mexico to Colorado, wanted to mark his tanks so his grandchildren could identify them!.
