New tank cars to VLI (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

VLI ordered 87 new broad gauge TCT class tank cars with Greenbrier/Maxion (GM). The tank itself is made by Delp here in my city Vespasiano and then sent by trucks to GM for finishing. I took these pics of some tank cars on trucks at Delp gates this week.

Neat. Do you know what they will carry?

They are for fuel, like gasoline, ethanol and diesel.

One of the trucks with the tank cars was involved in a tragic accident today. One person died.
