Now Joel why would you want to perpetuate such a silly Myth as that, if you call adding 3-4,000 lb's of compressed gas to the already heavy car maybe so but it is not in reality true the car gains the weight of the gas just like all other freight cars. when the gas is compressed in the tanks it becomes liquid and therefor is a solid and gives the car additional weight. Check out the pictures on the following web sites: TPRHS's site Texas Panhandle Railroad Historical Society and the Amarillo Railroad Museum's site @ amarillorailmuseum.com

Hi All,

I am detailing an O Scale J&L Tank car for a customer. On the same pages in the Car Shed Cyclopedia of the J&L car
are 2 helium transport cars for the army and navy. With tongue somewhat pressed in check, were these cars lighter
loaded then when empty? (:->)

Thank You,
Bill Lane
