Tangent HO scale GATX 1952 tank car
Tangent Scale Models has released an HO scale model of an 8,000-gallon General American Tank Lines (GATX) 1952 general-service tank car. The finely detailed, ready-­to-­run model represents a plentiful prototype seen on practically every railroad in the country.

According to the Official Railway Equipment Register (ORER) (Railway Equipment & Publication Co.), GATX, one of the nation’s big three tank car leasing companies, had 45,632 tank cars on the rails in 1953. In addition to oil and gasoline, these cars carried corn syrup, fertilizer, liquefied petroleum gas, bleach, acids, and wine, among others.
