Some time ago the Swedish firm commenced building all-welded tank wagons differing considerably in design and construction from the usual type. The Olsson wagon has no separate underframe but instead, at each end, a fixed two-wheel frame welded to the tank, and consisting of bearing forks, buffer beam, draw box, and cross bars. These end parts carry buffer, draw gear, spring suspension, brake mechanism, and so forth. The tank is strong enough by itself to support the load, and also to withstand all drawgear and buffer forces.
