I finished my 8 axle VICX 4814 RailWhale.
This is one big tank car! It's 91' long, weights
526,000+ LBS loaded, and hauls 48,330 GALS of Vinyl Chloride. I also weathered it with Bragdon powders, as, I had some good photos to go by for a change. The walkway is off set, so it's rusted much more on that side.

Thanks, Bobby

Boy, that is one behemoth, Bobby. Very nice modeling. Did this car run a particular route on a regular basis? I would think that there would be many areas where it would run into trouble.

Thanks Bruce. I'm not sure where the cars ran. They always ran in blocks.

Regards, Bobby
