Well, I guess I just did! CSX mandated that all short tank cars be placed at the end of the train. Our local Hercules plant had a fleet of the rounded end ones. See my scratched brass one. Gareth,

They appear to to be 100-ton frames but with 33" wheelset fitted. I changed mine to Accurail 77-ton roller bearing trucks. Bob Hultman in Brentwood TN USA Gareth,

Does this mean that you can't place a 40ft car next to a 60ft car? Still, makes things a little more interesting when planning train consists. > restricted equipment rules prohibit putting short cars (those less than 50 feet in length) next to long cars (those greater than 50 feet)

BTW, restricted equipment rules prohibit putting short cars (those less than 50 feet in length) next to long cars (those greater than 50 feet), lest they get pulled off going around a curve.
