ATSF was not the only railroad to have attractive red freight cars. I snapped this picture near San Marcos, Texas, June 1996. At one time, it was a really nice red Missouri, Kansas & Texas covered hopper. It was lettered for the BKTY. Why the B? One account has it that these were cars that were financed for the railroad by the Bankers Leasing Company.
Above, is a similar car (next car in series #1362) captured in 1988. it is a nicer specimen than that one I photographed 1996.
