    These are old warering cans used by the railroad , again , diggin in the garage. Maybe a poor memory can be a good thing, its almost like goin to the flee-market & not having to bring your wallet!

      Are you sure those are RR? Standard oil used one just like photo #2 in bulk trucks

      you could be right, ive had these so long i cant remember if they came from our bulk plant or from one of the railroad items from back when. Could even be the R.R. used these in there bulk trucks. I really kinda thought the one in pict.#1 was possibly a fuel cont. With the large output spout, seems like filling one of these 5 gal. cans would take longer than emptying one.
