Re: OMI 1930-built GATC 10,000 Gal double dome tank car
Nice model. :-)
Folks discussed those Overland cars years ago on STMFC and elsewhere. The conclusion
has always been that Marsh just "made up" those two particular cars. They would have been
ok if he'd used SMALLER domes. Unlike the 3230 model we've been talking about - which does
have a prototype, if an exceptionally uncommon one - those two look kinda ridiculous.

Here's my Overland tank car. Friend Jerry Spoelma painted and weathered it. I had asked for an appearance of having carried something awful and nasty. Couldn't find those NITX reporting marks in any of my ORERs so guessed the best I could. The model, OMI-3230, was built by Ajin.
