I have quite a collection of these propane cars, both new and used. I'd be interested in some trades for other unique cars, such as cryogenic cars from Broadway

The ACF® "whale body" 33,156 gallon tank car was designed to haul liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and anhydrous ammonia. Originally built in the early 1960s, you can still find these cars in service today.
