Shell Tank Car was sold in 1962-66. According to all of the current guides there are three reported variations, but in fact there are four, all of which have Type III plastic frames. The first is a bit rare which is painted yellow over a white plastic tank with a black ladder and is missing the typical "SHELL" sticker. The second and third variations are more common. They both have yellow plastic tank bodies and brake wheels with shiny handrails and ladders. One unit has one diamond marker; the other, as shown in the rear of the photo, has two markers. The fourth one is shown in the foreground of the photo, which is not mentioned in the Greenberg reference guide, and has a blue plastic frame.
