Oops, my bad  ;)

60000 LBS not 6000 GAL

David,
Are those measurements guesses from the photo or off the MT car?

I need to buy another car for bashing.

They are measured from the car using a calliper.

Thanks.  In that case the MT car should work just fine and I hope they release a 1 dome version of the same sized car!

In related news. I can't find my scale rule or my NMRA gauge  :-\  I will probably find them a day after new ones show in the mail...

I like the different build dates on the frame and the tank.  Was this originally a three dome car in 1917 and the tank re-dated 1924 when the center dome was removed?
