Re: Styrene Tank Car candidate (and a resin nomination)

Bill, Jerry has a set for Columbian Gasoline, which is painted the same as the Warren car.
As far as I know Anchor is a seperate entity. Gulf Oil purchased Warren Refining in 1956, but continued to use the WRNX reporting marks.

I have a photo of a Warren car with the same look as Tom's tank and dome casting, including the rim around the top of the dome. My question is since I already have the Sunshine car painted for Warren (and Cities Service), is their another scheme I can apply. I purchased a set of "Anchor" decals from Jerry Glow gambling I might be able to used them. Does anyone have a suggested owner for Tom's tank other than Warren?

BTW, were Warren and Anchor related in some way? The lettering used by both companies is so similar, it seems they might have been affiliated in some way.

Hi Tom,

I think that you mean the Sunshine #36 series ACF insulated tank cars. I
have built 3 of the Sunshines, one of which is a Warren, plus the tank body
I acquired from you. Yours is noticeably larger. I have not yet painted
the car I created from your tank and, now that I see the difference, I am
wondering if there is an issue.

On a related tank car note, can someone who has one of the Warren tank
bodies I marketed a year ago and one of Sunshine's #31 series tank car kits
with the wrapper & pipe construction tell me if it's the same tank? If so, I
can make more of them for replacements in those kits.
