Trinity 17,600 Gallon Corn Syrup Tank Car



The prototype for our new 17,600 Gallon Corn Syrup Tank Car was built in large numbers by Trinity Industries between 1984 and 1998. Of the over 7,000 cars that were built, most are still in active service today.

The cars followed a common bent-barrel tank design that helps the product drain and unload easier. These cars are jacketed and insulated, and have exterior coil pipes to heat the commodity to promote faster unloading. Midland food-grade butterfly unload valves and Midland exterior spring safety valves were common appliances used on these cars. The biggest variation in the car production was in the manway / top platform arrangement. Several arrangements were specified by large shippers; for example ADM, Cargill, Corn Products, GATX, MCP, and Staley to name a few.

These tank cars are commonly used to transport varying grades of Corn Syrup, Liquid Sugar, and Molasses from processing facilities to bulk distribution centers and other end-users throughout the US and Canada. They are a very common sight on today's railroads, and they have been for two decades. This initial release features three of the most common manway/top platform arrangements as specified by ADM, Cargill, and Corn Products (among others).

Features:
  • Three separate styles of manway / platform / ladder arrangements (used as appropriate per road name)
  • Fine scale railings
  • Separately applied brake rigging
  • Separately applied manway “clamshell”-style cover used when appropriate per road name
  • 100-Ton Roller Bearing Trucks
  • Accurate painting and printing
  • Full stand-alone brake system details
  • Bottom outlet valve detail
  • Stand-alone heater coil pipes
  • Highly detailed body with prototypical jacket seams
  • See-through top platform grating
  • AccuMate® couplers
