Introducing the modern 30,000 Gallon Tank Cars, a vital addition to the expanding fleet required to transport Ethanol across the nation. With growing support for Ethanol as an alternative fuel source, these tank cars play a crucial role in efficiently hauling millions of gallons of this valuable resource from the corn-belt Midwest to high-consumption areas throughout the country. The AAR-classified "T108" model has emerged as the most commonly used tank car for Ethanol transportation today.

Designed to meet the demands of modern transportation, these non-pressurized tank cars boast an impressive capacity of 30,000 gallons, making them ideal for long-haul journeys. Each tank car stretches nearly 60 feet in length, ensuring ample space for efficient delivery. As the demand for Ethanol continues to rise, these 30,000-gallon tank cars are often observed as part of extensive unit trains, some stretching up to a hundred tank cars in length.

The attention to detail and quality craftsmanship of these tank cars is evident in their construction. Die-cast metal sprung trucks and operating couplers provide stability and reliable operation. The hidden uncoupling tabs ensure seamless coupling and uncoupling, enhancing the efficiency of operations. Rotating bearing caps add a touch of realism to the model.

The tank car's robust construction includes die-cast metal end sills, metal ladders, safety rails, steps, and railings. These metal components not only contribute to the durability of the tank car but also provide an authentic appearance. The metal platform, featuring etched metal walkways, adds another level of detail to the model.

An opening fueling hatch cover on the roof platform allows for realistic fueling operations. Each tank car features unique, non-consecutive road numbers, further enhancing the authenticity of your fleet.
