Re: tank car identity

Tim O'Connor

The car is a Type 17 but perhaps not identical to the model. Nevertheless if Tangent did that scheme
(while David holds his nose!) they'd probably sell 10,000 of them!! :-D

He could even give them different numbers so fleet buyers could run unit trains of them! :-P

Tim's Baby Ruth Tank car photo looks quite similar to Tangent's GATC 1917-design 8,000-gallon, non-insulated tank car.
Would that be a "legitimate" paint scheme for that car?  If so, I hope David is reading this!
