I found this link to some good information on Kaolin, seems to be a big thing in the paper industry, and others.


I have a couple of Kaolin cars, mine are covered hoppers, though I think the more modern way nowadays is to use tank cars.
I've seen a few of the Atlas RTR tank cars lettered for Kaolin companies.

Great links Dave, esp. the first one!


Thanks Ken

Hoping we can build up a rather large database of industry resources for all of us to get that industrial siding producing and looking good :)
