The designing and building of large and more efficient tank cars requires analysis of the car cost in relation to gallonage capacity and maintenance requirements. The author offers some observations that have been made to date in progressing tank car design from the 100-ton capacity truck to the use of the four-wheel 125-ton truck and the six-wheel 150-ton truck with particular emphasis on cost and maintenance problems.
