@TigerTankFan I have fixed your image. You had html in there for some reason, which was the cause for it not working... I removed it and now the image works perfectly Very Happy.

Nice #picture by the way Smile.

In case anyone was wondering, this train is my representation of the Southern Pacific Railroad's "oil can" train.

if you look around on YouTube, you will find videos of this train, but you will be shocked to see how many locos they have used on it

Unfortunately MTV and I only have 5 examples of this tank car each, and these model kits are rather hard to find now. It doesn't mean that they aren't produced anymore though, as I did find some "ready to run" examples via a web search last week. As for the real life version of this train, here are some stats:

each train carries 1.8 million gallons(US) of crude oil (23,700 US gallons per car) and usually weighs 10,608 US tons. In its early days, it had nine (sometimes ten) locomotives on it but the newest version only has three (due to mechanical operation improvements).

which is why they need so few locomotives to pull this train now
