Prototype History:
High Capacity Railroad Tank Cars for Cryogenic Fluids, or Cryogenic Tank Cars for short, are used for the transportation of super-cold fluids such as liquid oxygen, nitrogen and argon. These tank cars solved the problem of maintaining extremely low temperatures while transporting large quantities of these materials over long distances.
These high capacity tank cars could transport more than 15,000 gallons of liquid oxygen--which is about double what any of its predecessors could do.

Cryogenic Tank Car Designations: DOT 113; AAR 204 and 204XT.

Cryogenic railroad tank cars are usually constructed of nickel or stainless steel as a tank within a tank. Because cryogenic liquids are very cold, insulation is placed between the two tanks and a vacuum pulled on the space to maintain the temperature. This process will allow the tank car a 30-day holding time.
Cryogenic cars transport various gases, including flammable hydrogen, liquid oxygen and poisons. Some cryogenic gases, such as nitrogen and argon, are considered inert. Temperatures of these liquefied gases can range from the warmest, carbon dioxide at –130°F, liquid oxygen at -297°F, liquid argon at -302°F, liquid nitrogen at -320°F, to the coldest, helium at –452°F. Thermal hazards of these materials are significant.
In addition to thermal hazards, cryogenic liquids have a large liquid-to-vapor expansion ratio. A small leak from a valve or container can create a large vapor cloud. Some ratios are as great as 900 to 1, meaning one gallon of cryogenic liquid can produce over 900 gallons of gas.

Road Name History:
The Linde Group, a German chemical company, founded Linde Air Products in 1907 as a US subsidiary. In 1917, during the First World War, the company was expropriated by the United States government and then acquired by Union Carbide, which operated it as a subsidiary. The Tonawanda, NY facility was instrumental in the development of the atomic bomb as the uranium used in the early bombs was processed there.

The Linde Air Company performed uranium and nickel processing for the Manhattan Engineer District (MED) and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) at the Ceramics Plant in Tonawanda. African and Canadian ores were milled to black oxides at the plant. Documents indicate that the facility was placed on standby as of March 1, 1950. Linde's contractual agreements with the AEC continued through 1953 for various activities relating to closing out work at the Tonawanda location. Linde was a part of Carbide and Carbon Chemical Corporation (C&CCC), which then became Union Carbide.
