HO Tank Car Question: I don't know much about tank cars, so I was wondering if there is a resource that explains (in simple terms) the different frames, bodies and cars for a non-knowledgeable modeler like me. I would love to know which frames work with which bodies, in a modeling sense. I understand the info is out there but it has never been important enough to me to do the digging. So is there a resource for guys like me e.g "Tank cars for Dummies" ??
Thanking anyone in advance for their help.

lettering by Tangent. Sinclair did have some 10K ACF Type 21 cars,
including a few with insulating jackets, both offered by Life-Like
models. Apparently they did not have any ACF Type 27s like the

I have Sinclair, Mobil, DX, and Standard oil jobbers on my layout.
I have an extra Intermountain 8K gal tank car that's excess. Any
of those oil companies own anything like the IM car? I do have two
Tichy frames if they'd help with a kitbash?
Thanks, Clark Propst
