The ACF® 8,000 Gallon Type 27
Tank Car was one of the most popular standard design riveted tank cars
of the first half of the twentieth century. ACF® built more than 1,800

chemical, and food industries. Virtually every bulk liquid or gas of
the era was shipped in these cars (and its similar 10,000 gallon
brother). Typical products included petroleum, acids, alcohol,
propane, ammonia, molasses and vegetable oil.
