100 Year Old Crude Oil Hauling Technology: General American’s 1917-Design Tank Cars

This weekend on June 23/24, the STL RPM will take place in Collinsville IL. This great meet is all about the fellowship of building railroad models, including talking about models, attending clinics about prototypes and their models, participating in weathering sessions, and buying photos/models/materials.

Tangent Scale Models will be in attendance selling our awesome industry-leading HO scale freight cars. We will also unveil something new, so drop on by and say hello!

Additionally, we will be giving a presentation on crude oil tank cars! No, not the modern ones from Trinity, Greenbrier, etc., but the General American ones from 100 years ago that kicked off the oil boom in the United States and Canada! Here is our table of contents page to whet your appetite!
