Micro tank cars

I was searching for photos of the chlorine flat that Traincat produces and came across this:

Very interesting stuff. Some of the 4000 gallon tanks are barely larger than the trucks they ride on.
You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me

They had some tiny cars like that for Bromine. Apparently that stuff is HEAVY and EVIL and not to be shipped in any decent quantity.

Me too.  I still want to do that really small D&H tank from the Thursday Proto photo thread a couple of weeks ago.

Im keen for the small D&H car as well.
It is also listed in the D&H Colour guide to Freight and Passenger Equipment book by Morning Sun in the non revenue area.

Yep.. that's the one..

Looks like a chop of a early Atlas tank car with a smaller tank will do the trick..

Any suggestions?

Would uing a Gold Metal Models detail kit with a Z scale tank car work?

NSBob:  The Z tank from MT was my first thought.  Splice two together for length, add the top fittings from the old Atlas chemical tank, and one's choice of underframe, and it should be close.
