VLI ordered 87 new broad gauge TCT class tank cars with Greenbrier/Maxion (GM). The tank itself is made by Delp here in my city Vespasiano and then sent by trucks to GM for finishing. I took these pics of some tank cars on trucks at Delp gates this week.

No, these cars can not be transported by rail since VLI do not have big flat cars for this. Also, there are tight cuts and tunnels on the way from here to Maxion plant in Hortolandia, SP. It is a more than 1,000km long journey by rail. By truck is about 600 km.

I deleted the duplicate thread at your request.

Any way the unfinished tank cars can be transported by rail?
