Prototype Year/Era:1941
Road Name:Sinclair
Road Number:13151
Product Type:Brass
Finish(unknown)
This factory-painted and lettered car. The ends state "6,000 gallons" and the sides state "80,000lbs". The manufacturer of this car is unknown. At first it was thought to be SouthWind Models, but the underframe detailing doesn't match other SouthWind Models tank cars. It is not a scale/gauge conversion car, as the rivets on the tank are S-scale size. The best guess so far is that this is a W.A. Drake & Co. pilot model. Bob bought this model second-hand, and the previous owner has no recollection as to its origins. If you have any idea, please contact the webmaster.
