This model is very different from the car shown in the photo. This model looks to be a flat car that has had a tank placed on it. This was not done very often and the few times this approach was used it was with narrow gauge cars or in some cases for cars used in maintenance service. Most early tank cars had an underframe that was different from the ones used on flat cars. Another point to make is that after 1904 tank cars were built with steel underframes.

LaBelle makes (or made) a
model of what could well be this specific car.  I built
it longer ago
than I want to think about, as a teenager.  Still have
it, too.  It
may have straight-pin Kadees on it, and IIRC, pizza cutter
wheels.  Hard
not to break off the railings.  I should dig that car out
. .

Here's an
interesting tank car. The photo is undated.
Does anyone know about these cars?

    Many tank cars
around the end of the 19th
century had side walkways like this. See any historical
collection.
