Re: ATSF Tk-N Tk-O tank car models


The capacity of the SP&S cars is listed as 16,000 gallons in an SP&S diagram book.  One photo I has reads 16,025 GALS. on the tank end.
Built September 1949 by GATC.  A.S.F. A-3-ride control.  6" outlet in bottom.  heater coils.  Roller bearings on 38610 and 38611 as of 1963.

Five SP&S still listed in ORER in 1995.

I dug out a photo of a Santa Fe car, and they look the same to me, except for the SP&S having a vertical brake handle shaft.
