The new Tangent General American 10K tank cars include Sinclair! I only need one for my small layout, and I immediately ordered from Tangent this morning. Since my sweetheart is a Sinclair descendant (no, not from the oil line), having Sinclair tank cars on my layout is good policy.
Accurate Sinclair and subsidiary UNPX tanks have been hard to come by up to now with only a few types available, and those representing mostly smaller lots. AC&F Type 11 8K in both high and low running board configurations are available from F&C. Jacketed and unjacketed AC&F Type 21 10K cars have been offered by Proto 2000.
I'm still hoping Tangent will do Sinclair in the next release of their 8K tanks. This was among their most common types (according to Richard Hendrickson's 1998 article in UNION PACIFIC MODELER, the best Sinclair article available). A pair would complete my needs.
