Re: Englehard tank car question

Engelhard did not get into the kaolin business until 1963 according to this Wikipedia article: . IIRC, kaolin was shipped in boxcars, sometimes equipped with roof hatches, and likely covered hoppers as well. I suspect shipping kaolin slurry in tank cars happened well past our era of interest.

One administrative thing to mention. It is considered proper to sign your posts with your first and last names on this group.

My off-layout paper mill in Johnsonburg, Pa. in 1964 may need some kaolin clay from time to time, so a northbound Englehard tank car would be a welcome occasional load.

Are there any accurate Englehard tank car models in HO scale?   The Walthers 16,000 gallon tank car decorated for Englehard looks a little clunky, larger than necessary and off period.

I would prefer a slightly smaller, older car from the 1950's.
