Tank Car

My friend Bill C. mentioned a Lehigh Gas tank car that was lettered for Norwich, Conn.  I have other info other then then the photo.  Does anybody know more about the company or the car.  Where in Norwich was the company located, did they have just the one car, what years was it in service.

Did Atlas or Kadee make a model or are there any decals available to letter it?


  1. I looked up LGX in my 1953 ORER reprint. It shows Leigh owned just one tank car, LGX 500. The ORER shows an address of Box 311 Thamesville Norwich, CT.

  2. Can you determine the capacity of the car in your original photo? The Kadee car could be a used, but looking at the size of the tank, the Broadway Limited tank car might be a be a better match.
