Re: Car ID just for fun

The tank car doesn't have stub side sills, so it isn't AC&F or Union Tank. On top of the dome, the two safety valves are a ways apart, not next to each other, but also not dead opposite. I'm guessing General American, and I'd model it with a Tangent car. (Most of what I know about tank-car spotting comes from Ted Culotta's "Freight Cars Reference Manual", vol 2.)
