LGB #49700-03 RhB TYPE ZA TANKER #8102
The Rhaetian Railroad (RhB) owns several of these modern funnel-flow tank cars. They are used mainly to transport petroleum oil products such as gasoline, diesel oil, heating oil, and similar products. LGB #49700 is a car set that consists of 3 of these funnel-flow tank cars that are new tooling. Two of the cars look as if newly delivered and one car is weathered (see the 3 car picture).
We have decided that because of the price of these tankers and the fact that the three car set is individually wrapped, we would sell them individually. #49700-02 is the new looking tanker (not weathered) and has a road #8102.
These cars can be filled from above as with the prototype and can be emptied below by means of a drain valve. The lettering is extensively and finely executed and the cars have sprung buffers and metal solid wheels.
Length over the buffer 62 cm / 24-3/8″.
