Tank Cars Banner


With the exception of a few plastic cars this is my tank car collection. It was VERY thin at 1 time. Completing my NASG cars in 2014 added to the mix.

Frank Titman built cars


These cars were built by Frank Titman for his Spiral Hill Railroad, built in his way of detail it to a point and move on. I don’t know or care about their accuracy. Frank built – good enough. I got them after the layout and rolling stock was liquidated in 2013. He offered a tank car kit but I never built one. I don’t know where the frame came from but they are metal. Luckily the cars are nice and heavy. Adding weight would be very difficult. I removed the original Ace trucks with the code 125 wheels, and added S Helper Service trucks with code 110 wheels. The 125 wheels caused flash shorts on my turnouts.

The J&L tank car was S Scale’s first piece of commercially made brass rolling stock made by NWSL in 1972. This was at least 10 years before another piece of S brass rolling stock was made. Everyone seems to want a J&L tank car in spite of their limited use.


This is my J&L tank car. I replaced the upper handrails using pipe fittings and phosphor bronze wire. I also made the Carmer Cut levers.  The trucks were made by my friend and fellow brass basher Rusty Rustermier.
