                                (Rail Tank Cars)

     This First Amendment to Loan & Security Agreement ("First Amendment") is
dated as of November 15, 1995 and is made and entered into by and between DSN
Corporation, an Oklahoma corporation ("Borrower") and The CIT Group/Equipment
Financing, Inc., a New York corporation ("Lender").


     This First Amendment is made with reference to the following facts:

     A.   Borrower and Lender entered into a certain Loan and Security Agreement
dated as of September 25, 1995 ("Loan Agreement") pursuant to which Lender made
available to Borrower a credit facility to finance the acquisition of ten
railcars; from Trinity Industries, Inc. 'Me terms used herein and not otherwise
defined shall have the meaning specified for such terms in the Loan Agreement.

     B.   Pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement, disbursements in
connection with the purchase of the railcars were to be made in two fundings. On
September 25, 1995, Lender made the first funding in the amount of $584,900.00
in connection with Borrower's acquisition of the first five railcars.

     C.   Borrower has now taken possession of four of the remaining five
railcars. Borrower is informed that the remaining fifth railcar has been shipped
by Trinity but its whereabouts, at this time, is unknown.

     NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the terms and conditions herein and of
the Loans heretofore, now or hereafter made to or for the benefit of Borrower by
Lender, the parties hereto agree to the following amendments and modifications
to the Loan Agreement:

     1.   Funding and Acceptance. Borrower represents that it has inspected and
accepted the four remaining railcars, copies of which invoices are attached
hereto, and pursuant to its Request for Advance and Pay Proceeds Letter, Lender
shall disburse the amount of $467,920.00 pursuant to Section 2.2 of the Loan
Agreement. DSN acknowledges and agrees that CIT is not obligated to fund the sum
required for the final railcar and that at such time as its delivery and
acceptance by DSN, any funding will be in CITs sole discretion.

     2.   Tangible Net Worth Amendment. Section 6.10 of the Loan Agreement shall
be amended to read as follows:

          "Section 6.10 Tangible Net Worth". LSB shall maintain at all times, on
          a consolidated basis, a minimum tangible net worth of $75,000,000
          subtracting treasury stock and $85,000,000 before subtracting treasury
          stock as at December 31, 1995 and March 31, 1996, $76,000,000 after
          subtracting treasury stock and $86,000,000 before subtracting treasury
          stock as at June 30, 1996, $77,000,000 after subtracting treasury
          stock and $87,000,000 before subtracting treasury stock as at
          September 30, 1996 and $78,000,0000 after subtracting treasury stock
          and $88,000,000 before subtracting treasury stock as at December 31,
          1996. Thereafter, LSB shall maintain a minimum tangible net worth of
          not less than $85,000,000 after subtracting treasury stock. The term
          tangible net worth is defined as total stockholders' equity, after
          deducting any treasury stock, less all assets that are considered
          intangible assets under GAAP (including but not limited to goodwill,
          patents, trademarks, certain deferred charges (as approved by Lender)
          and customer lists).

          LSB shall also maintain, on a consolidated basis, a leverage position
          (defined as total liabilities divided by tangible net worth, after
          deducting treasury stock) of 2.25:1 as at December 31, 1995 and at all
          times thereafter."

     3.   Conditions Subsequent. Borrower further agrees that within ten (10)
days of the execution of this letter that it will provide CIT with amendments to
the Railcar Lease Agreement and such amendments to the Consulting Agreement as
may be acceptable to CIT, in its sole discretion.

     4.   Representations and Warranties. Borrower represents and warrants as

          (a) Each of the representations and warranties contained in the Loan
Agreement is hereby reaffirmed as of the date hereof, each as if set forth

          (b) The execution, delivery and performance of this First Amendment

any contractual restrictions binding on Borrower;

          (c) This First Amendment is a legal, valid and binding obligation of
Borrower, enforceable against Borrower in accordance with its terms; and

          (d) No event has occurred and is continuing or would result from this
First Amendment which constitutes a Default under the Loan Agreement, as amended
and modified hereby.

     5.   Miscellaneous.  This First Amendment shall be part of the Loan
Agreement, the terms of which are incorporated herein, and the breach of any
representation, warranty or covenant contained herein or the failure to observe
or comply with any term or agreement contained herein, shall constitute a
Default under the Loan Agreement and Lender shall be entitled to exercise all
rights and remedies it may have under the Loan Agreement, the Loan Documents and
at applicable law. Borrower agrees to pay all costs, expenses and attorneys'

all search, recording and title insurance expenses and in carrying out or
enforcing the terms of this First Amendment. Except as expressly provided
herein, Lender is not waiving any rights under the Loan Agreement or any other
Loan Document and, except as expressly provided herein or as previously modified
in a writing signed by Lender, all of the terms, covenants, and conditions of
the Loan Agreement remain unmodified and in full force and effect. Capitalized
terms used herein and not otherwise defined shall have the same meaning as set
forth in the Loan Agreement. This First Amendment may be executed in
counterparts, which counterparts, when so executed and delivered, shall together
constitute but one original.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have executed this First Amendment
to be effective as of the first date above written.
