Tank Car Loading

A tank car is a type of railroad rolling stock designed to transport liquid and gaseous commodities. Many variants exist due to the wide variety of liquids and gases that can be transported. Tank cars can be insulated or non-insulated, pressurized or non-pressurized, and designed for single or multiple loads. Non-pressurized cars have plumbing at the bottom for unloading, and may have an access port and a dome, housing various valving on the top. Pressurized cars have a pressure plate, with all valving, and a protective cylindrical housing (dome) at the top. Loading and unloading of tank cars are accomplished in a variety of ways and is completely determined by the nature of the liquid being handled.
