Modern 30,000 Gallon Tank Cars

In the last decade, growing public and government support for Ethanol as an alternative fuel source has created the need for an expanded fleet of modern tank cars to haul millions of gallons of Ethanol from the corn-belt Midwest to high-consumption areas across the country. The most common tank car used for ethanol transportation today is the AAR-classified “T108” model. This non-pressurized, modern tank car has an impressive capacity of 30,000 gallons and is nearly 60’ in length. As demand for ethanol increases, 30,000-gallon tank cars are increasingly seen in long unit trains, some nearly a hundred tank cars in length!
