Bill Frank came over to the house yesterday, he had been charged with making the
proto-type for Charlie Ro's new tank car offering... So we went into my shop and
created one... This is basically a 39 ft version of the existing 56-7 footer as in the pic
below, we created the one on the right in about 4 hours.. To be sent to USA Trains
Monday morning, and coming soon to a Hobbyshop or train store near U...

Don't really know all the details of the effort fellas, apparently Charlie
wants to get this to market ASAP though... I'm just the grunt that did the
dirty work on the car... Bill did have a drawing of it in the car cyclopedia
however, so there is a 1 to 1 proto-type...
