Re: F&C tank car mods


Bruce & Garth,

I have two of these PRR TM-8 tanks from F&C and on regard to the tank ends and sides, you are absolutely correct, Bruce! The outside diameter of the ends is smaller than the outside tank diameter, therefore the ends are undersize. Also, the rivets on the cars are so small that they are almost non-existant. I will have to redo all the rivets on the sides and ends and rework the end diameter to match the tank diameter.

All this for a pair of cars to act as wallpaper at the diesel shops at Enola and Harrisburg.
