Hello Clark:
When I was growing up as a boy we lived next to a feed mill that had a
regular delivery of molasses in tank cars. That kind of operation has
been of interest since that time. Now that I have added a feed mill to
my layout, I can bring in the molasses. I posted several photos in the
Files under 'Molasses'. The prototype shots were taken at the Illinois
Railway Museum. The end shot clearly shows where the steam was
injected to warm up the fluid molasses. The car at the museum was in
very good shape. You can also see my model of same.
