A model based entirely on a design study from the Fifties. If it has been up to the graphics artists in the Fifties, the CALTEX logo would have adorned every tank car for the American petroleum oil and energy company Chevron Corporation. However, it only remained as a design suggestion.
Prototype: Four-axle standard design tank car, used on the Dutch Railways (NS). Older type with pressed sheet metal trucks and a brakeman's platform. Privately owned car painted and lettered for the firm Caltex Petroleum Maatschappij, Netherlands N.V with a fictitious design from the Fifties. The car looks as it did in the Mid-Fifties.
The car has special smooth running trucks. The ladder and catwalk are separately applied.
Length over the buffers 14.2 cm / 5-5/8". DC wheelset E32376004.
