Re: Westerfield Kits - Heinz Vinegar Tank


John King
 

Thanks to all who responded, both on the list and privately.

My original post was not 100% clear. The car I was talking about was a wooden tank car. Heinz had a fleet of 36 foot cars. Imagine a shorter version of the Standard Brands car from Sunshine or a shorter version of the car that Ambroid produced years ago, but with completly different details.

Overland imported a version of the Heinz vinegar tank 15 or 20 years ago and Strombeker made a kit in 1949, but the paper wrapper Strombeker used for the tank details doesn't exactly come up to today's standards.

There has apparantly never been a resin kit for this car.

Al, could John be asking about one of your pickle cars?

I was visiting a layout last week and there was a excellent model of Heinz 204 which he identified as being built from a Westerfield kit. I don't remember ever seeing this model on his lists.
