Not only the blue funnel flow tank cars will be ready next week, also the Cargill cars. And the end of the summer Staley tank cars, built in 1974. But I do not think the Staley cars will be on time for the NMRA.

See the flyer below. Look on facebook, search for Zeuke-TT, for a larger flyer about the blue cars.

Ciao,
Rob

Another picture of the blue tank cars, including the HazMat placards.

And some pictures of the Cargill cars as well.

This means that the first batch of tank cars has arrived.

Ciao,
Rob

Tank cars in action on the fair in Dortmund, April 2015.

Isn't it a nice view. The coupler height was measured again and was exactly according to the NMRA norm.

What a mix of different railroads and liveries. SOO, CSX, LN, CN... :shock:

P.S. Bernd, a small bunch of RS3s was made by German TTers some time ago. I like ALCO RSs, but unfortunately I do not have such model. :(

Very nice scene - but what is the black tank car in the photos? My period of interest is 1955 +/-, so I am looking for cars similar to the type 103 8000-10,000 gallon cars. I think the Joma car is close to that, but since my coming to TT, I have not had a chance to acquire any. And the HP kits are just a bit too basic. :boohoo: (Wait - afaik HP never actually had a tank car kit, they came from other manufacturers, correct?)

The black car seems smaller than the white and blue ones, is it a different model, or does the black color just make it look smaller? Still, the tank looks maybe thicker and shorter than the type 103. Especially the funnel-flow design is not right for my period, and the 103 tanks are more rounded at the ends.

It looks much more modern than a Type 103... possibly a 13,000gal corn syrup or chemical car from the 1960's era...
I'm not aware of the TT-scale source... but the straight-tank car would have been a relatively simple build.

For the earlier era, into the mid-1950s, cars evolved from riveted (103R) to welded (103W) tanks, but stayed on full-length underframes. On the UTLX history page http://www.utlx.com/history.html they mention that the FIRST modern frameless car was only introduced in 1954. They have a good downloadable slide show with many photos at: http://www.utlx.com/pdf/TankCarHistory.pdf

Either from Lok-n-roll, built from a kit, or scratch built.
I have also some more modern tank cars than Joma, just more colorful and probably older. http://www.ttnut.com/john-harmon-tank-cars-t2215.html
And if you really want the Joma tank cars... see pm.
