    A coworker saw it and asked what it carries. I said erm, uh, gee, I, uh, leave me alone it's Monday!

    If you look closely, in these photos, one of the ends is always concealed, either by positioning, shadow, or cropping. Coincidence, or tap ? :D :D :D

    Jon, that's a really neat car! :cool: But no matter what it carries, it won't carry it far if you don't put some couplers on it! :eek: :D

    Dag,I told them not to drink any 'til they get the tanker all built up and rollin'!

    Or it will go really far if there is an incline; the wheels spin free and it weighted :D :D :D Actually I need to complete the whole bottom. I just stuck that HO passenger truck on for the photo.

    That's a really interesting looking car, Jon...
    What is it used for?
    If that's an HO passenger truck, then this looks like it might be O scale?
    On30? (resistance is futile, right? :D )

    Charlie, I started out just playin' around, and I ended up with a large HOn3, or a small HO, depending how you look at it. In HO, it's 9 ft. wide, 22 ft. long. I didn't measure the height, but it's almost as tall as an HO boxcar (I didn't mean for the cap tp be so tall, I thought I would remove more material to get it to fit, and I didn't plan on an above flush lid). Not well planned, but a good learning exp.

    Rich, I think you get a half a shot in 1:1 or 1500 gallons in HO :D :D :D

    Now can you guess what materials are used where?

    plastic - brass - aluminium - stainless - wood (duh) ;)
