In the foreground of the main photo is an example of an early 1952 Gulf tank car with riveted knuckle couplers. The middle Gulf tank car was produced from 1953 through 1956. Both of these 925 Gulf tank cars have diecast metal frames. The tank car in the background is a 1956 model with a plastic frame. Very few #925 Gulf tank cars were produced in 1952 with knuckle couplers. The ones that were produced in 1952 have knuckle couplers that are riveted to the trucks. Photo #2 shows the underside of all three 925 Gulf tank cars. The bottom one is the foreground one in the main photo, and the middle one is the middle one in the main photo. Photo #3 shows a #925 Ted relettered to an SP&S Trumbull Asphalt car.
