Shortened Atlas 33K gallon tank with new tank saddles, ends, etc?

Correct. The ends are from the early Atlas Kaolin car. The short black plug came from the Athearn 62' tanker.

Wowsers!
Some really nice modelling there, I rather like cars with multi axle trucks.
Cheers,

Some people are just born with “it”, you received more than your fair share! :D

Maybe if you made a sulfur car,, the manufacturers would get the hint. I thought about using the corn syrup car, then just use decals for sulfur service.

I have seen multiple cars that you have done,ALWAYS top notch.

Not for nothing but if someone were to 3D print and sell those trucks in nscale you could kitbash the old Roco/Atlas Whale bellies into one of these tanks that Bobby has painstakingly recreated.
