Z Scale Sweet Liquid Tank Car Series

Z Scale Sweet Liquid Tank Car Series

Special food-grade tank cars have been used to transport a variety of sweet concentrates from distribution centers to factories all over the United States. Commodities such as corn syrup, cane syrup, honey, molasses and others were commonly shipped in bulk by rail in heated tank cars to processing plants, chocolate factories, breweries and soft drink factories. Sometimes adorned by bright and flashy artwork, they were colorful “stand-outs” in any manifest freight train.  This Sweet Liquid Tank Car Series will feature twelve prototypically accurate 39’ Single Dome Tank Cars in N and Z Scale.
