ScaleTrains HO Scale: Operator Series - Trinity 31K Tank Car w/ Head Sheilds - Valero

Since 2012, Trinity has built thousands of 31,000-gallon tank cars with end head shields for crude oil unit train service. The head shields cars are designed to prevent a coupler from piercing the ends of the tank car body during a derailment.

As demand for shipping crude oil by rail has declined, these cars are now carrying ethanol, gasoline, petroleum distillates, and other commodities. In addition, these cars can often be found in mixed freight trains.
