Tank Cars

While the railroads may have declined in terms of influence and in terms of how much cargo they carry across the United States, they still provide a very valuable service to many industries who use rail in order to transport goods. One of the largest sectors that still uses rail services is the oil and gas industry, as well as other liquids, such as milk. These companies use huge tank cars in order to easily transport large quantities of liquid across the nation.

  • Lionel 1928240 Anheuser-Busch Unibody Tank Car. Anheuser Busch was the first American brewer to use pasteurization, which allowed for them to ship beer across country via rail. They were also one of the first to utilize refrigerated rail cars.
  • Lionel 6-9354 Pennzoil Tank Car. When oil was first discovered in 1859, it was transported by horse and wagon. Then, oil was transported by barges on rivers when it began to be put into barrels. Finally, in 1865, two brothers invented a tank car designed specifically for transporting oil efficiently in a manner that did not leak. Today, oil continues to be transported via the railways, and this is only growing as the oil production in the US has grown.
