Dear sir,What a magnificent job done by all concerned.When complete,I`m sure it will look wonderful.I can`t believe the size of the thing!Here in Australia our oil tankers were half the capacity of that monster...
We used a two part catalyzed acrylic urethane product manufactured by CARBOLINE. They have been supplying coatings to railways for many years. The various layers were spray painted using an airless sprayer.
Yes. I have been doing all the lettering on the freight car restorations and for some of the other cars. I have some of the artwork done, although the letters are not applied in a strict interpretation of stenciling. We transfer the pattern to the car, and then hand paint for most of that.
I am doing a report on Tank Car. I would like to ask how much does it cost to restore a tank car, how long does it takes to restore a tank car and what are the constraints of entering the refurbishment business? How much capital would be needed to start a tank car refurbishment business? Progress Rail Service-A Caterpillar Company is a large refurbish entity, how does their present play a role in anyone trying to get into the refurbishment business?
