    I just got these two rolling stock kits the other day. This is the first time I've bought anything from Intermountain, & they are beautiful little cars! Smooth-rolling, hefty little things!:cool:

    This first one is lettered for the Stauffer Chem. Co.

    Yeah Charlie, those cars are something else. I have a few and I really like them.

    Nice looking tank cars Charlie. I am sure they will see heavy service on your layout.

    It would be nice if Intermountain would do a run of Procor tank cars, no one has done them yet, and that's all I see out here in Calgary.I guess they wouldn't be to hard to paint, they are just black!

    Charlie,
    I built up one of the Harbor Tank Lines, in the brief handling of taking the car on trip (ran it on Ezdays, Don's layout) the plastic handrail has already been broken. You might find it necessary to replace the plastic rails/handgrabs with wire.
    All in all though, very nice, and definitely NOT shake and bake kits.
