No... it's the maximum weight (of anything) that the car is designed to handle and may not be exceeded.
8000 gallons of water is actually ~ 66,700 lbs.
8000 gallons of oil or gasoline for example is much lighter. Other products may be much heavier. 8000 gallons of corn syrup is ~ 87,500 lbs so if this car design is used to carry syrup it wouldn't be able to be loaded to the full 8000 gals.
I need assistance in removing the shell of an old Athearn Blue Box Southern Pacific 1984 Olympics 7347.
Ideally, if someone could provide instructions on youtube, that would be great.
The model I have has a shell with a dimple on eachside of the front and rear. I have tried to remove this...
Anyone have any idea where a person could find a storage box similar to this one here?
This listing is not a bad deal...
