The Niles Canyon Railway Museum in Sunol California has two Flying A railroad tankcars. One is a single dome car with the Flying A clearly visible and the other is a three dome tankcar that is painted forPhillips Petrolem but below that paint the wings of the Flying A is clearly visable. Both cars were built for Associated Oil and had AOX reporting marks.

Newbie here. My family has a history with Flying A / Associated and I just found these *wonderful* pages!

I need your help -- and I am sure I am now in the right place.

When did Associated introduce "Aviation Ethyl" ? I see one person on this topic has a sign for Aviation Ethyl - yet a Google search on the name brings not one hit!

It is very important to me for I have an old family photo from what appears to be ca. 1928-33, of a Flying A gas station. The globe on one of the pumps is "Associated Aviation Ethyl" and it looks as if it has just been introduced. I am guessing on the years and wish to ID the photo more precisely.

Thank you!!!

Bonnie

Flying A enthusiasts: I have two more questions -

Does anyone know the time-table for the changes in the design of the Flying A?

When was the logo first used? What years did it have those skinny -- more 'realistic' -- bird-like wings?

Also - does anyone know if there are Associated Oil Company archives some where?

Grateful for any incoming leads...
Bonnie
