Here are a few detail shots of FLIX 94016, taken by David Casdorph. This is a 21000 gallon ACF "tip-tank" design, built 10-93. Note that this car is an insulated T105 without any heater coils---pretty rare. Length over the coupler pulling faces is 50' 2", and height is 15' 0".
Below is a top view of one of these ACF built Farm Land Industries tank cars from the same car series. Note the lack of reporting marks on top---some FLIX cars built by Trinity and Union Tank Car have reporting marks on top. Also, note the seam along the top where the jacketing is put together......something that would be very visible on a model.
