Re: USATC WWII tank cars

AC&F built at least some of them. One is shown in Kaminski's AC&F book (not the tank car book). I have one of the models. I'm planning on using Archer rivets to make the car into a two-compartment car, adding Tichy manways and safety valves, and creating a new underframe from Intermountain parts.

Nothing like them in the US. They are not two compartment cars; a standard dome of adequate capacity would not fit European clearances, so two smaller domes were used. Note only one dome has a manway and safety valves. Likely the underframes have something in common with the same builder's domestic product... anyone know who built them?
