    Hey Dragon, welcome to The Gauge. I tried various web searches but was unable to come up with any info. A grain car with Shell Oil markings sure sounds like some kind of mistake. If they are truly rare, they could be highly desirable to certain individuals, kind of like misprinted postage stamps.
