Considered one of the most common early tank car designs, American Car & Foundry (ACF) Type 27 tank cars were built from the late 1920s through the 1940s. These specialized cars were almost always privately owned for revenue service because railroads only used and maintained a few for non-revenue activities like fuel.

We are pleased to deliver the Type 27 tank car which is the slightly elongated younger sibling of the Type 21 tank car. These insulated high pressure cars were used often in the transport of the home heating fuels propane and butane as well as anhydrous ammonia, chlorine, and methyl chloride. We are modeling the 6000 gallon car that often hauled liquid chlorine.

These meticulously appointed single chamber tank cars are offered in 2-pack sets. See below for more model features.

Model Features:

  • Model accurately scaled from prototype blueprints

  • Prototypically accurate paint, color, and lettering

  • Two distinct body types

  • Separate brake line and brake hoses

  • Separately applied handrails, ladders, roof walkway, and various other details

  • Metal wheelsets feature prototypical wheel face contours

  • Factory equipped with metal Kadee-compatible knuckle couplers

  • 2-packs contain two uniquely numbered cars

  • Fine printing accurately reproduces builders' stencils, trust lettering, repack data, and other minor lettering

  • Brake test stencil data printed on brake reservoir where appropriate

  • Reporting marks on center sill where appropriate
