Re: Blackstone Models UTLX tank cars

Just a heads-up...

Paging through the October 2009 issue of RMC, in an article about the California State Belt Railroad ideler cars, several of which were built from tankcar frames, is a builder's photo of the frame, trucks, and tank saddles for a ULT class X tankcar. This is the frame that will be needed to convert the narrow gauge "narrow frame" (why do the call them that?" tnakcar to standard gauge. It also does a good job of showing the visible parts of the Cardwell draft gear (the springs) that UTL was fond of using.
