  • 2225 gal. Bromine tank car- scratched

    This is one of the smallest tank cars ever built. Built as one of an order of two in 1960.

    I built it using an article in MR Feb. 2001.

    Thanks, Bobby

    Nice work. IIRC, Model Railroader published plans of that or a similar car 10-20 years ago?

      Thank you Jim. Yes, the article was in the Feb. 2001 issue. It was for a O scale car, but had good drawings that I scaled down to HO.

                Wow... outstanding!

                Would I like to see a step-by-step of this project! Really sweet eye-catching candy.

                  Karl, thank you for the compliment.

                  Kris, I followed the article in MR except reducing it to HO. The body is the N scale Roundhouse 50' modern tank that I cut to length and shaped the ends. The walkway is Plano walkway material that I doubled up by using silver bearing solder. Everything else is following the article. Thank you.

                  Regards, Bobby

                          Some people at these vary forums pointed these out to me-

                          I've used them once. They are a little brittle, but look great. They have a peel and stick backing, which will save me from using too much glue. I made that mistake once and have been trying to fix it ever since.

                          I haven't weathered them yet, but nothing looks like weathered wood like weathered wood.
