Re: Intermountain 8K Tank Car - Accuracy?
LOUIS WHITELEY <octoraro1@...>
If you do choose to do the Dow car, Jerry Glow's DOWX decals are fantastic. The
Dow 8K tank car pictured in Volume 3 of the Railway Prototype Cyclopedia was
built at the same time as the 10K cars for which Mr. Glow produced the decals.
Richard Hendrickson tipped me off that Dow listed the actual gallonage of each
car in the ORERs. The four DOWX cars represented in RPC Vol. 3 were renumbered
from 8350-8353 to 38308-38311 in 1940.

Thanks for the help. I went ahead and ordered one from Yesterdyear tonight--an
8k gal kit. I plan on upgrading everything including he handrails with wire, so
I'll let you know how it goes. Will probably be a Shippers car, but I may do the
Dow car using Jerry Glow's new decal set.
Thanks again for the help!
