|Dave the postman arrived really q u i e t l y today . . . ?
No reving engine.
Not a wiff of burning rubber...
...or flying gravel !!
" That $%£&@*? bloke has &?*%$£ well parked right in the middle of the @?*&£%$ driveway AGAIN !! "
" Morning Dave, That must be my Tri-ang ICI Caustic Tankcar "
" What ? "
" For my train-set Dave "
" Oh "
With the Mysterious Moose Mountain Molybdenum Mining & Manufacturing Companys growing need for liquid assets...
...the Moose Mountain Line needs more tankcars.
After the controversy of their recent riveted-bridge purchase...
...no need for the ol' abacus for any 'counting' here !!
100% all WELDED construction !
Just realised I didn't take a photo of the original '60s Tri-ang tankcar.
Had the darn thing apart too quickly for modding & bashing !
Not a bad lil' ol' tank, interesting WELDED side-supports.
Not a single stanchion-rivet in sight !
Checked her out on one of our scratchbuilt wooden underframes.
Decided though, that this fairly mooodern design will get a steel-underframe.
More later . . .
