 Some words from Barry on this projectů

   Here is the latest project at Bogs Locomotive Works. I found three brass 20.3 tanks on E-Bay last year, and thought that they may work for a SG tank car in 22.5. Using an O and HO scale tank car kits as a guide, I made a casting master for the frame out of plastic that you see in the pictures. I will be casting two halves and gluing them together to make the complete frame. The valves and brake rigging will then be added and the tank bolted to the frame.  I had a few details missing when I took the pictures, but they are now ready for paint.
