I kit bashed a 4kgal Ethyl tank car several years ago from the AHM "Olde
Time" tank car and an Athearn chemical tank car dome. I had to make my own


To get a sense of how small this car is look at the trucks and couplers!

I'm REALLY hoping that Frank will want to do any of the Ethyl, Dupont or Dow
"antiknock" tank cars -- Spectacular paint schemes, very common cars, found
all over the country wherever gasoline was produced (or blended) -- Such
were used from the 1920's to the 1990's.

Another great tank car type would be the 3k-4k (?) bromine tank cars -- tiny
little things. :-)

These cars would be a good project for the "Tank Car Division" of Resin Car
Works to consider.
