Tank car help


Clark Propst <cepropst@...>
 

I'm not much on tank cars. We're trying to find out what types of cars these were. They were purchased by the M&StL in the early 40s for weed sprayer service. Here's what Gene Green was able to provide. Any help of what to use for a model would be much appericated,
