SCARCER TYPE F TRUCKS
You are looking at a Louis Marx turqoise-blue three dome tank car. This one is the blue Allstate unit issued under catalogue number 5553 but without an actual number on the side. I believe the car is from around 1960.
This car came in a few versions, so be sure you have them all. Though this item also more commonly came with Type G trucks, the metal-sided ones, THIS CAR has the less common Type F plastic-sided trucks.
