Re: PC: PC Calcium Carbide car

<<<I was at a recent model train show & picked up a model that I can't
find any info about.
It's an old HO Penn CEntral car by A.H.M. & is identified as a 'Calcium
Carbide' car.   It looks like a flat car with a grid-like series of
open posts - like they're made to hold individual canisters or something
like that.   The gridwork is all open.  I looked through the Penn
Central Freight Equipment guide but couldn't find it.   Does
anyone know:
- Did the PC actually have a car like this?   If not, any idea what
road might have had them?
- What would a load for this car look like?  Maybe I could scratch
build a load for it.   

At our convention in Strasburg this weekend, I think it was Mark
Branibar that had a slide of a PC car that fits your description. I
can't remember for the life of me anything about it.
Maybe someone else knows.
What # is on the car?
