Product Description

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 individually numbered cars in 4-pack sets.

  1. Finally, a smaller HO scale tank car !!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2018

    For years I've been looking for a smaller than 10,000 gallon tank car. In the 1960's, my grandparents retired to a very small rural community along the Missouri Pacific Lines. There was a spur on the St. Louis to Kansas track that always had a small tank car of gasoline, connected to a even smaller storage tank with a gravity operated pump. This supplied the farming community with fuel for decades. Now there's finally got a model that comes pretty close.
    We also used to see a lot of these cars, no longer with wheels, up on concrete 'stilts' serving as storage for asphalt and other petroleum products, usually black, but occasionally painted silver if they served some other industry.
    The HO scale world has a plethora of larger tank cars, but smaller ones have been very hard to come by, until now. BLI has done an awesome job in preparing and producing these tank cars. To me, they look great, run well, and simply can't be beat for a 1930's, 40's or 50's era railroad.
