Jon, not to be argumentative, but I think a 6-dome wine tanktoggle quoted message Show quoted text
car would not only sell, but it would sell very well, if it were done
properly. Which do you think would sell more: the GA-Pfaulder milk
car, or a 6-dome wine tank car? My bet would be on the latter.
I think it was one of the Gerstley collection photos that shows a
string of 20 or 30 wine tanks in a yard in California... Fresno or
Bakersfield, I forget where it was. And that collection includes a
number of photos of wine tanks. Heck, we've had a dozen models
of vinegar and pickle cars, but when was the last time someone
did a wine tank car?
The Detail Associates gondolas were quite time consuming to build
AND were much too light when completed. Personally, it was their
light weight that turned me off. But Red Caboose saved the day
and I think they've done quite well with them.
Anybody want to buy 20 DA gondola kits?? :-(
I don't know about tank cars as LL and IM (and Tichy) have done a bunch
