Another question about the UTLX cars.

Intermountain has released a 10.000 gallon UTLX welded type.
But they also have a 8.000 gallon welded version of that type.
Did the UTLX also owned 8.000 gallon welded versions of that type?

Arnold, do you have Intermountain and Red Caboose mixed up?
IM does make make a welded 10k tank car, but RC does.

Arnold,

Yes, sort of, to your original question. As we have noted here to you
previously, UTLX had their own design, the X-3, for riveted tank cars, and
a wonderful series of kit is available in resin from Sunshine, inlcuding
short and long 8K gallon and a 10k Gallon riveted tank. For the majority
of your UTLX cars, these would be most appropriate. However, UTLX did own
a variety of other cars. The cars sold by IM are XC&F type 27 designs.
IRRC (and Richard I'm sure will feel free to correct me), UTLX did have
both 8K and 10K type 27s although not that many (they would have had more
Type 21s, as done by Lifelike). Also be careful as the IM kit I have has
white lettering and UTLX cars all had yellow lettering!! So you'll either
end up wheathing the heck out of it (appropriately) or redoing the
lettering anyway.

Regards
Bruce

To the best of my knowledge, UTLX did not own either 8K or 10K Type
27s. Certainly they didn't buy any new from AC&F, and I have never
seen photos of any UTLX Type 27s acquired 2nd hand.

Arnold,

The answer is simple. The Proto 2000 tanks are type 21's not Type 27's <G>

It is InterMountain who make the Type 27's

Cheers

Mr. Hendrickson,

Proto 2000 have a policy not to release something which didn't existed.
Why did they released them then in UTLX paintscheme?
