That Rio Grande water car looks like a repurposed wine tanker.

Neat shots!

since this is a re-post here's confirmation of your comment from my original post that was added by 'rrpreservation': "The car originally carried vermouth. It was in a derailment and paid off, the Rio Grande rebuilt it and kept it for water service."

The first car (Amoco) looks like it’s empty. I’m curious what load it is designed to carry?

Amoco car is a safety training car and does not haul any product.

Like the color coded domes on the Georgia RR car.  Good idea not to get those two products mixed up.

Amazing that the beer can tank car doesn't have roller bearings, considering that it is a welded design. Wish i could read some of the dates on the side.
