to this particular issue with emphasis on the railroad graffiti, which is art, vandalism and reality of the modern train era. This 2nd catalog publication is again dedicated to the many O gauge enthusiasts and to the global 1:43...1:48 scale community. Generally the bodies of the depicted rolling stock are handmade out of garbage materials, such as food packing materials, poster mailing tubes and dumped refreshment tin cans. Most of the artistic decoration with quite unlimited imagination realized on the rolling stock is either handpainted or computer-designed with color inkjet prints. Many free graffity fonts can be downloaded from the web. Any weathering is applied only with drybrush technique. The rusty metal is made with pigment powder. The purpose of this issue is hopefully to inspire you, the active O gauge modeler, to produce your own vandalized rolling stock for the industrial backyard on your layout. ______________________________________________________

U.S. Fuel Tank Cars...

A mixed fuel tank car set, which consists of several completely scratch-built modern and post-war rolling stock. The cars are hand-painted, detailed with grafitti decoration of different motives and finally weathered. Their heavy weathering indicates the transportation of crude oil load to refineries.


Fuel Tank Cars ...with Grafitti The tank cars can be equipped on both sides either with hi-rail couplers or with scale coupler. Alternatively on one side there can be operational hi-rail coupler while on the opposite side can be manual scale coupler. The trucks can have either hi-rail wheels or flanged scale wheels. So, trucks and coupler are replaceable at any time depending on the track profile of the layout.
