Each dome is the entry and fill point for a separate compartment which is emptied at the bottom. All three compartments were equipped with steam heating pipes to enable the car to haul thick liquids needing to be warmed to flow easily such as tar. The X in the UTLX indicates the ca was owned by a company other than the railroad. Number 3882 is 37' long and holds a total of 6,600 gallons (2,200 per section) or 80,000 lbs. Donated in 1983 by the Union Tank Car Company.
