Shippers Car Line Corp Road # S.H.P.X. 7675
39' Single Dome Tank Car
Part #MTL-065 00 170N Scale Supply Price:
Reprint: Aug 2008
This black 39' single dome tank car has white lettering and runs on black Bettendorf trucks. Shippers' Car Line is a division of ACF Industries and operates cars under the SHPX reporting marks. Many cars were leased out to private companies. The diamond symbol on the dome denotes the manway bolted cover (dome closure) has a built-in safety feature so that internal commodity vapor pressure can't cause the cover to spring up when releasing the bolts. Newer tank cars we required to have this feature, eliminating the need for the symbol.
