Thank you sir! I tried searching on tt-board but don't know the specific German terms to use and the search returned a LOT of results. Would've taken me a week to read through all of them.

Another version of BTTB's old 4-axle tank car with two different truck types: http://www.tt-board.de/forum/showpost.p ... tcount=335

Thanks lüTTe. Is it just me or does that make the BTTB wagons appear out of proportion? Like the tank itself on the models is skinnier than the real thing.

... but on the positive note, the prototype seems to be lacking those side markers at the sides of the tank that so often break off the BTTB models! :wink:

You're right, there is truly a wide range of varieties of this wagon type, with insulated (partially heatable) or uninsulated tank variants for various liquids, brakesman's cab or without such, different tank domes, ladders, handrails, walkways and so on, because the basic construction of this common type is a quite old one.

I guess the lesson here as BTTB said is, if some details like the railings of your wagons are broken, don't worry! You're still in prototype : ))

Tank cars are brilliant for scratchbuilding or kitbashing, since there was such an enormous variety - to some extent even within a "standard" design - that whatever you do probably had a prototype. It's part of the reason I'm a tank car nut - the only thing I'm more obsessive about (in the railway field anyways) is boxcars. You could argue which has more variety - but I won't, I'll just go for both! :)
