General American Transportation, applying the benefits of volume transportation through the unit train, has come up with an integral train concept that it calls a "million gallon tank car." Since it involves handling techniques of storage tanks, it holds potential of improving the distribution of bulk liquid commodities. The new system has a unique combination of interconnects of flexible hoses and special valves. With them a million gallon 40 car tank train can be filled or emptied from a single connection. The train thus brings that capability to the terminal.
