Description

HO Scale

High Capacity Railroad Tank Cars for Cryogenic fluids, or Cryogenic Tank Cars for short, are used for the transportation of super-cold fluids such as liquid oxygen, nitrogen, and argon. These tank cars solved the problem of maintaining extremely low temperatures while transporting large quantities of these materials over long distances.
Curious as to how cold these cars could keep liquid oxygen? How about -297 degrees F. Liquid nitrogen kept at -320 F. And liquid argon at -302 degrees F!
These high capacity tanks could transport more than 15,000 gallons of liquid oxygen – – which is about double what any of its predecessors could do! See below for model features.
