About Säuretopfwagen’ – acid tank wagen by Pieter Post

The car is a Epoche 1 ‘Säuretopfwagen’ (acid tank wagen) based on Marklin model 58724 and Piko model 58914. These open top freight cars with two axles were used to transport all kind of acid chemicals. The canisters were made from stoneware and could be emptied using air pressure. The content varied between 800 and 1200 liters. Due to the stoneware canisters, they needed extra caution whilst shunting. These cars were all private property of chemical firms, hence the ‘P’ behind the car number.
