All the tank cars belonging to the S. Charles Fish Head Glue Co. are in use. 

Thanks for looking.

Regards, Dave L.

Why would those cars have handrails at waist level for the figures,

or retain the O scale steps on each end?

The second Tuesday of each week the cars are wiped down,
and the cloths are washed and hung on the handrails to dry. 

"Stumpy", one of the workers, needs the foot stirrups,
to get up for the wipe downs.

I like to use picture hanging wire to simulate cable. 

If you can find some older stock like this one,
or can find some on the back of an old frame it is a pretty good,
in scale, match to the real stuff.

The S. Charles Fish Head Glue Co. has added a new little engine to the roster. 

Its construction was covered in the "What is 'Gn15' ... ?" Thread.

I've been sorting through the rolling stock owned by the Charles Co,
and realized that there are quite a few odd pieces of equipment on the roster,
single, one off cars and a few, multiple sets of cars. 

Realizing that I will probably never use them on the layout,
they will go into indefinite storage.

Specialized cars on the layout will be the mainstay for operations. 

These tank cars transport hot, liquid glue to customers.

Open gons will carry unprocessed fish heads from across the island to the factory. 

One red tank car will import boric acid used in the process. 
Its color distinguishes it from the glue tank cars.
