Thanks for the tip, but I don't have an Athearn 10K tank. I have
8Ks and a 12.5K. The Mantua is a 10K though.

Garth, if you measure an Athearn metal "shorty" tank car,
you will find it is very close to 10,000 gallons. The
measurement and calculation is simple, as I showed in a blog
post some time back. If you're interested, here is a link:
