“Back in the days when Arrowhead Water was delivered by rail ... a Pacific Electric freight motor leads tank cars of spring water through the streets of downtown San Bernardino in 1947.”

Hello Bob,
Thank you for posting the photograph of the Arrowhead tank cars.
Is there any information about how to model these tank cars.  I note the two different flat cars.

The flatcar on he right is available from Owl Mountain:
I built a couple as PE from the kit.
