I thought "What better a place to ship an 11k gal Irving tank car than this?"
Although I haven't yet decided where to place it on the layout, I think it's going to go in Port Hood. The Co-op already has a large mill complex, and the Home Hardware, so I think it needs a residential fuel dealer too. I already have a little Walthers coal trestle to go with it.
I started by assembling the concrete piers and placing the bottom half of each tank in place.This helped keep everything even and square. Then I glued the ends on the tanks, like so:
After that, I installed the access hatches in the top half of each tank and simply pushed the tops on the tanks with a couple drops of glue.
Now that I've located my good tweezers I can get to work installing all the little pipes and fittings included in the kit.The black vertical pipes were the hardest to keep in place, but they're in. All I have to do now is give the whole thing a shot of white paint - which isn't going to happen today as the balcony is currently engulfed in a snow storm.
