Tank Cars (4 of 5)
Gilbert made 24 distinct tank cars as listed on a little over a page of the TM Guide, not counting the variations on some of the 24.  Lionel made 38 more up through 2006 under the American Flyer name.  Because there are so many, I have split them up over five web pages:

Gilbert tank cars #625 through #925 are
page 1
                             #926 through #24321 are on
page 2
                             #24322 through #24330 are on
page 3
Lionel tank cars  #9100 through #48406 are on this page
                             #48407 and above, plus my American Models and K-Line tank cars are on
page 5

Unless otherwise specified, the large pictures on this page are of cars in the collection of The Upstairs Train.

If you have a picture that you would like to share with the world of any of the cars not shown here (or a better picture of one that is shown!), email them to me: theupstairstrain@yahoo.com.
