Now I've built the Precision Scale tank car. I want to weather this car. Are there any prototype pictures available?
Thanks

Wolfgang,

I found these two pics but you may want to save this site and search around it a little more.  They have tons of Colorado railroading pictures.

There are lots of occasional pictures in various books, like the ones by Richard Dorman. But mostly, the individual cars are a bit far/small for details. You might check Sloan and NG Pictorial 4. The Denver Public Library pictures are nice because they now allow you to zoom in for details.
