Re: UTLX X-3, 6.5K tank car
I’m still learning the nuances of tank car spotting features but gallon capacity becomes a math issue.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
RCW kit noted has a 6,500 gallon capacity. Someone posted the Philadelphia Quartz lading would be 1.3 to 1.5 times the density of water.
6,500 x 1.3= 8,450
PQCX 110 is noted as having an 8,066 gallon capacity in the 1943 ORER.
So it’s on the ballpark, but I have no dimensional data on the PQCX prototype to see how it matches the UTLX class X-3 6,500 gallon cars.
