Norm, thank you for pointing that out!  I need to remember that you offer 1:87 decals.

Would the new RCW 8k gallon X-3 tank be close to the PQCX cars? (Per Protocraft site, PQCX 108-110 built in AC&F lot 1603 in 1937)?  The RCW cars appear to my untrained eye to be similar, other than brakes and dome relief valve details, but the prototype was built in 1927 & 1929, a decade earlier.
