I could only afford it by selling off parts of my collection I no longer wanted, not paying street retail prices, gifts, being patient on eBay and Invaluable, negotiating at train shows and train stores looking to offload their stuff, Broadway Limited Refurbished Outlet, and zero interest layaways but prices are going up across the board so I might as well get them now before they become even more expensive.

Some official new additions to my roster:

Arco Pre-Merger Atlantic 400 series combo cistern cars (White Flash & Hi-Arc tanks).
The first 2 of proposed 16 or so total (custom decal work).
Train Rolling stock Vehicle Plant Track


Train Rolling stock Railway Rolling Railroad car


Train Wheel Rolling stock Vehicle Track


Train Vehicle Wheel Rolling stock Toy


Still finishing up a pair of Atlantic 5600 series with a different paint scheme.

And added to the Arco Pre-Merger Richfield fleet as well; now 6 completed out of 24 total planned cars. That includes two factory painted ones (far left in last photo).

Not Proto 2000…..those corner stirrups are too chunky to be Proto, plus the grabs are all modded on….Proto has all separate grabs….

See post #135….that’s my latest Proto tank car….

I’m betting Athearn too….especially since Proto never made any 3-domes….

Nice work! (y)

But, in my opinion, Tangent’s 3-dome tank cars are the finest plastic 3-dome tank cars ever made….albeit on the small side (6,000 gal)….

Yes they indeed look nice. "The finest ever made" could very well be as of this date.
But seeing as I need about 60 of four ARCO schemes, I'm going with the "most cost effective."
I'd never strip paint off a Tangent car to re-decal it; they've too many fiddly bits.
