Shorty Tank Car Details

- They say always take lots of "Florida Orange" with you. I hope 5120 gallons is enough. - This is a fun and easy car to build. Just start with a 10 gallon air tank from Harbor Freight or one of them and start welding. - Then when all is ready paint it your favorite color. Orange is NOT mine. - This is a standard "Tom Bee" tube frame. Notice the electric brakes on one truck and air on the other. - I just welded four pieces of angle-iron to the tank and drilled holes to match the frame. Actually, I drilled first. The bolt you see goes through the angle-iron and through the walkway frame and through the "Tom Bee" frame. A lockwasher and nut finish the connection. - Top cage and ladder details. - Bill. -
