Considered one of the most common early tank car designs, American Car & Foundry (ACF) Type 27 tank cars were built from the late 1920s through the 1940s. These specialized cars were almost always privately owned for revenue service because railroads only used and maintained a few for non-revenue activities like fuel.

We are pleased to deliver the Type 27 tank car which is the slightly elongated younger sibling of the Type 21 tank car. These insulated high pressure cars were used often in the transport of the home heating fuels propane and butane as well as anhydrous ammonia, chlorine, and methyl chloride. We are modeling the 6000 gallon car that often hauled liquid chlorine.

These meticulously appointed single chamber tank cars are offered in 2-pack sets.  See below for more model features.
