A Two Dome Tank Car

I have been slowly finishing the “tank car project” from the summer and the latest car finished is this two dome tank car.

The decals are old Walthers HO decals that worked out great; Deep Rock was a gas retailer in the area of my layout and had a number of similar three dome tank cars, such as the one in this photo.

The car itself is freelanced, as noted in the original post, and is based on a Tyco HO body. I was trying with it to imitate the look of vintage OO but with mostly modern parts. It matches classic OO models pretty well and runs great on the layout.
