Re: ATSF Tk-N Tk-O tank car models
Bill the Tk-O's were built in 1953 not 1963. And no those non skid strips were not there as built but probably added in the 1970's or 1980's.

One of the cars in my "TO BE UPGRADED" pile is a Tk-O tank car from Division Point. I purchased a photo of car number 98040 with a build date of 1963 from Bob's. The car is banded for DIESLE FUEL and the photo was taken in 1957, What has held up my progress on this project are anti-slip strips placed around the dohme. The pattern of the strips is not clear in the photo. I would also like to know if the strips were on the car as delivered or added later. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
