Built for the ET&WNC to haul gasoline, two of these cars were later acquired by the U.S. Army and moved to the White Pass and Yukon railroad to support the War Effort.
The flat cars were black with white lettering, and the tank was silver with black lettering. To complete the model, paint and decal to your liking.
This model was designed to use the following for completion:
- Kadee #713 or #714 couplers
- 4’8″ Arch Bar Trucks (Blackstone B370109)
- 8 – 18″ Grab Irons
- 4 – 18″ Drop Grab Irons
- 2 – 24″ Grab Irons (Hand curved to match tank Dome)
- 1 – Outer Handrail (Jig Below)
- Brake Wheel Shaft
Due to the fact that 3d printing is a relatively new and in many ways experimental manufacturing technology and the fact that many of the models I manufacture push the limits on what is able to be manufactured, not all models can be successfully printed every time. Every effort is made to avoid any issues during the design phase, however, from time to time we do have unforeseen issues during the manufacturing process. We (Shapeways and I) appreciate your patience when issues do occur.
