Staying with the tank car theme. Here is my only Pike-Master car. A 24329 from 1964/65 with a split tank and railings and platform. The split tank is a tank with the bottom of the tank part of the plastic frame instead of being a complete cylinder mounted on the frame. I have to learn to keep my fingers out of the picture.

Another nice car. The Pikemaster cars can be ok to run if kept in the middle of a consist and no uncoupling is required. i have many similar pictures with the out of focus object in the upper left corner!

This is a case of answering my question before I even asked it!
Just the sort of thing I need to know at this juncture.
