Re: Detailing for early tank cars

The C&S used CB&Q and FW&D high walkway tank cars to bring fuel up from Texas. There often was one parked at the C&S enginehouse in Fort Collins for fueling the oil-burning steamers and, later, the diesels based there.

I recall seeing such CB&Q cars in (probably) company service during the late 1950s and maybe into the early 1960s.
Don’t recall the number series but it should be able to come up with them from the “Ownership, Age & Condition” rosters.
I model in N Scale and so far we don’t have any such cars to letter up.

RE: High-platform tank cars
Note that anyone modeling a WW-II period “oil” tank car train could use a couple.
They weren’t many, but they did stand out in the pictures I have seen.
