Is this the type of tank car shown imploding here? Abductive (reasoning) 19:14, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Probably so because the event most likely occurred in North America. But implosion is a rare event because it requires volitionary external suction. Explosions occur more frequently. (talk) 11:31, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
It's certainly not a North American car. It has European buffer-and-chain couplers which are never used in North America. The design may be similar but it's not clear how the construction standards compare.--agr (talk) 12:48, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

How long is it?[edit]

no basic information in one place — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:19, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

DOT-111 is a set of construction standards (there are different DOT-xxx standards for various different kind of products, DOT-111 is basically for unpressurized flammable liquids), not a set of dimensions. DOT-111 tank cars come in several different sizes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:34, 13 May 2014 (UTC)


The variant names should redirect there

Please explain the distinction between DOT111 and DOT111A[edit]

"DOT-111A cars are equipped with AAR Type E top and bottom shelf Janney couplers...." I didn't see any introductory remarks explaining that. Thanks. (talk) 15:12, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

The distinction is made clear at, but I have a feeling I'll make a mess of things trying to edit the page. Whoever is editing this page is doing a good job, and I hope he adds this information. There are some typos in the .pdf to which I just linked, so maybe another page with the same information will be better. (talk) 17:01, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

There is no difference, the A is a delimiter and has no meaning except as a place holder to indicate the number after it is the pressure the car is tested to. [1]


Here's an article for someone to use: • SbmeirowTalk • 20:01, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Lots of items like this(including items not behind paywalls) but this article is about the tank itself, not the movement of commodities.--Daffydavid (talk) 20:35, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Clean up[edit]

Article is is in need of clean up. Some items are in the wrong sections, others are way too wordy. I will try to do some when I have time but feel free to help out. Thanks. --Daffydavid (talk) 05:15, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
