Re: Overland UTLX Tank Car

John,

Mine is a 10,000 gallon car. Says so on the label, too.

I converted mine to AB brakes. Does yours have KC brakes?

I have one of the old HO Overland UTLX tank cars, 8,000-gal
version. Is this an X-3?

Yes, it's a late X-3 (ca. 1930) with the wrong trucks (if it still
has its original Andrews trucks). By 1930, the X-3s were getting
AAR cast steel trucks with spring planks. I think I have a photo if
it would be helpful.
