    A coworker saw it and asked what it carries. I said erm, uh, gee, I, uh, leave me alone it's Monday!

    Just could not admit that that was your moonshine car, eh? ;)

    If you look closely, in these photos, one of the ends is always concealed, either by positioning, shadow, or cropping. Coincidence, or tap ? :D :D :D

    Jon, that's a really neat car! :cool: But no matter what it carries, it won't carry it far if you don't put some couplers on it! :eek: :D

    Dag,I told them not to drink any 'til they get the tanker all built up and rollin'!

    Or it will go really far if there is an incline; the wheels spin free and it weighted :D :D :D Actually I need to complete the whole bottom. I just stuck that HO passenger truck on for the photo.

    That's a really interesting looking car, Jon...
    What is it used for?
    If that's an HO passenger truck, then this looks like it might be O scale?
    On30? (resistance is futile, right? :D )

    Charlie, I started out just playin' around, and I ended up with a large HOn3, or a small HO, depending how you look at it. In HO, it's 9 ft. wide, 22 ft. long. I didn't measure the height, but it's almost as tall as an HO boxcar (I didn't mean for the cap tp be so tall, I thought I would remove more material to get it to fit, and I didn't plan on an above flush lid). Not well planned, but a good learning exp.

    Rich, I think you get a half a shot in 1:1 or 1500 gallons in HO :D :D :D

    Now can you guess what materials are used where?

    plastic - brass - aluminium - stainless - wood (duh) ;)
