Re: Oil companies for IM 8K tank

I haven’t dug out my copy to check, but I suspect John White’s The American Railroad Freight Car might be a good place to start looking. Other strong possibilities that come to mind are the Car Builders’ Dictionaries and the Car Builders’ Cyclopedias as appropriate for your era(s) of interest. The Newton K. Gregg Train Shed Cyclopedias contained reprints from those and other publications. Train Shed Cyclopedia No. 12, for example, pertained to “Tank Cars 1922-1943.”
Hope that helps.

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.
