Tank Cars for Shipping Molasses or Molten Sulfur?

Does Atlas or anyone else make N scale tank cars suitable for shipping two products: molasses and sulfur. Which tank cars for which product?

I see Atlas's 20,700 gal tank is mainly suitable for shipping "tallow, animal fat, fuel oil, diesel fuel, vegetable oil, soybean oil, fertilizers, lubricating oil, waste oil, and glycol." Sounds like molasses wouldn't be much of a stretch.

The molten sulfur may be a problem. Any info?

Thanks for all replies.


Hmm... wouldn't molten
sulfur melt the tank car's
plastic...?


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

I should have mentioned I'm modeling 1971. I believe the trinity tanks are too modern.


Hmm... sez Kiz, living in
the 19th century...

There's an older n scale tank car that's pretty close to that.
