Hi guys,

Regarding the black tank car from the Fifthies, wait one year, after the funnel flow a straight frameless tank car is one of the goals. But it will be on base of the funnel flow car, same trucks, Kadee compatible coupling, etc.

Ciao,
Rob

This is correct....HP never made a tank car kit. Besides the previously mentioned Joma tank cars, Gandy Dancer and StarLine made TT tank car kits with various roadnames in the 1950's and 1960's.

I believe, the base for the black tank car is that model: http://www.zeuke-tt.com/de/hadl-kesselw ... ep-iv.html

Not the Staley tank car will be produced as the last not black funnel flow tank cars but a white Procor car #64139. This car will be available in 2 or 3 weeks. In a week more info about this car.

Kind regards,

Excellent!
Any plans for a plain old black wrapper UTLX version?

If a wrapper tank car has a frame, I can not give you a planning. If it is frameless with a straight tank, it will be the first half year of 2016. The basis has to be the actual funnel flow tank car, where we can use railings, domes, the trucks and the way the trucks are connected to the tank.

Hope it helps.

Ciao,
Rob

Hi Rob,
If you look on page 33 of this document, you can see what I mean- http://utlx.com/pdf/TankCarHistory.pdf
It is a Funnel Flow (maybe a little bigger capacity, but that doesn't matter to me), and the dating puts it back into the 1960's instead of the 80's or 90's. To me your existing car in black paint would be fine. Check out an HO version- http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/Walthers ... 100118.htm
