NTCX “1922+ Lease” is our offering for “pre-depression” and “pre-diesel” modelers out there who have been requesting “plain” tank cars! We have listened. NTCX are the reporting marks for National Tank Car Company, who operated a fleet of 8,000 and 10,000 gallon tank cars. Their insulated tank car fleet represented more than 30% of their total tank car fleet, which was large percentage-wise. This model is offered in the “plain leaser” NTCX scheme from 1922 and was stenciled from an actual photo (see our website). These NTCX cars were nationwide roamers and were likely used for viscous oil products. Our National Tank Car Company 1922+ cars come with era-correct K-brakes and are available in three road numbers. Because each real tank car was formed by hand and had individual gallon notations stenciled on each end of the car, all three of our models have the correct gallons stenciled on each end. Yup, we did the research, so you don’t have to!
