The short & long of it-48,000 vs 2225 gals

[ Guests cannot view attachments ] [ Guests cannot view attachments ] [ Guests cannot view attachments ] Both cars are scratched. I decided to photograph them together to show the contrast. The big car is the largest production tanker built. There were two larger cars, but they were one offs. The Bromine car is one of the smallest. Thanks for looking.

Regards, Bobby

The second didn't show up, so I'll try with a new reply.   Bobby
I can't get the Bromine car to show up. I'll try again latter.

When you are downloading attachments you are probably selecting the wrong option.
My preferred way is to select Inline full-size image.  That photo shows up in the post full-size - no clicking or downloading is required by readers of the post.

The default option is End-of-post thumbnail (which is what you were doing). That has to be clicked by the reader of the post to bring it to full size (a pain in the butt).

THe ones which don't show up are empty files (0kB in size). Somethgin must have happened while you were uploading them.

Bobby, those tank cars (as usual) look great!  You are our resident tank car specialist.  :)

If you have higher resolution photos of the Bromine tank car (side and the end), could you email them full-size to me?  I'm working on a N-scale  decal set and would love to be able to read all the small print.  My email is peteski7 at yahoo dot com.
