Re: Tichy Tank Car with AB Brakes


While the USRA tank car (as Tony notes) wasn't built, the WWII-era USG-A cars had four horizontal courses like the Tichy kit; some underframe modifications are needed, but one can get pretty close. A few articles: Hendrickson, RMJ 10/90 pp 48-49, 67; Goslett, RMJ 4/91 pp 24-25; Pinchbeck, RMC 7/02 pp 91-99; Waite, MM 1/06 pp 60-64. All these articles show the brake systems.
