A string of interconnected tank cars with flexible hoses, developed exclusively by GATX’s research and development team, allows for quick loading and unloading of commodities including crude petroleum oil, benzene, light fuel oil and phosphoric acid.
The GATX TankTrain™ System can be loaded
or unloaded at a rate of 3,000 gallons per minute.
A five-car string loads in just 90 minutes, while a
90-car train takes less than five hours.
