Overview:

For most of the steam and early diesel eras, tank cars followed a standard design: an 8,000-11,000 gallon tank perched on a flatcar-like underframe. Beginning in the mid-1950s, however, a new design took hold: the tank itself became the structural backbone of the car, eliminating the need for a full-length underframe and making bigger tank diameters possible.

But not every shipper needed the much larger capacities that the new tank cars offered. Hence the advent of these "beer can" tank cars in the mid-1960s, with capacities similar to pre-war tankers. They proved ideal for customers who didn't want larger shipments, and also for transporting a wide variety of heavier, denser liquids including industrial acids and foodstuffs. For modelers, they're an ideal counterpoint to longer cars in a modern freight train.
