.... does anyone have either the outside dimensions to one of the Type

cars to see what the frame length, tank length, tank diameter, and dome
diameter are?
Except for dome diameter, these dimensions are given in the 1931 and 1937 Car Builders' Cyclopedias: U/F length 36'8-1/2", width 9'3", 8K gal. tank 78" ID X 31'3-1/4" IL, 10K gal. tank 87-1/2" ID X 30'9-1/4" IL. FWIW, tank dimensions were identical with AC&F Type 27 and U/F dimensions were quite close.
