Re: Staley Tank Car question and modeling advice

Hi Doug and Steve and List Members,
Doug's photo shows the car AESX 22 closest to the camera. The Fallen Flags web site has an image of AESX 23 - the next car in the numeric series of reporting marks.
In any case, AESX 23 looks to be a dead-on match for AESX 22.
Hope this helps.

This car is an ACF product, like a Type 7 or 8.  An approach modeling this car could be from an F&C tank car kit, probably the high walkway car, with the running boards lowered.  What isn't clear from the on-line photos is whether the end sill of the kit has the trapezoid shaped end sill.  The hand rail across the tank ends are a notable feature.

To all,
In looking for photos, I ran across this picture of a Staley tank car from the Decatur Herald and Review website.  I don't know much about tank cars and was wonder what type and any suggestions about how to maybe model such a car.
