Re: 3-dome tank car


Try HO Seekers.  Here is a link to their Athearn page.

Look under 1950's kit instructions.  Information on Globe tankers (an other likely suspect) is a little sparse

I would doubt this. I have an Athearn metal tank with three domes, and MANY aspects of the construction are quite different from the car in Gene's photos. Does anyone know of a print or on-line source of information about Athearn's metal cars other than house cars?
