I hope I'm not out of order here , Mic , but here is the photo you sent me earlier this month.I thought the Boys would like to see what has inspired you to build your water tank.

Wow Nick. That was startling. This photo is the Real Thing on Tip Sheet #7. Not a bad way to get it started!

Mike.

I am working on some pics for Forum perusal. Kind of a study of weeds and water. In a day or two I should have something to post.

The picture shows the Electric Eel car on the Goldfield & Hangtown RR. The wooden tank holds salt water and an electric Eel; when his services are required, his favorite food is dropped in the top hatch, (shown open), followed by a cable from the end box. Cables from the spigot on the tank end and from the hatch are connected close to the rail ends to be welded, and the operator bangs on the tank to agitate the eel and cause him to generate his electricity. The food fuels his functioning.
The power is sufficient for code 70 rail; two eels are required for 100 lb. rail.

I thought the idea was shocking at first, but then I got juiced up about building it, and devolted a couple of days to amp-lifying details to make the current model, so I wouldn't ohmit anything.

Wallace, I guess that car is a good outlet for your modeling skills. Good looking car and very creative. Thanks for sharing.

A flat car in front of a freight platform. "Scratched" except for trucks and couplers; same for the platform.
