What kind of car is this?

New guy here. Looking for an identification of the use of the type of car this would be. I got a couple at a local show, partly because I didn't know what they were.

It is a ROCO, made in Austria. that's the only markings on it.

I look forward to your answers and learning more about model railroading.

Could you tell me what the road number is? It is the number to the left of C&O in your picture that is like 6 or 7 digits long...
Well, to be honest with you this is the first time that I have ever seen anything like this... Usually I would check the roadname on certain sites, but it appears that ROCO did not use prototypical numbering... A Google search did not turn up much, but I did find one person who said that they were used for hauling propane tanks... It makes sense at least :dunno:

EDIT: Make that Calcium Carbide :laugh:
