Prototype History:
Tank cars are a railroad staple. They have been around since the first half of the 20th century. These railcars carry a wide array of commodities, including liquid fertilizers, chemicals, fuel oils and asphalt, and food-grade oils. Tank cars can be pressurized or non-pressurized, insulated or non-insulated. Single dome cars carry only a single commodity at once. Food-service tank cars may be lined with stainless steel, glass, or plastic. Tank cars carrying dangerous goods are generally made of different types of steel, depending on the intended cargo and operating pressure. They may also be lined with rubber or coated with specialized coatings for tank protection or product purity purpose. The tank heads are also stronger to prevent ruptures during accidents.

Road Name History:
Headquartered in Hamburg, VTG Aktiengesellschaft (VTG AG) is a publicly traded and leading international wagon hire and rail logistics company with around 80,000 railcars on its books at the current time – the biggest privately owned fleet in Europe. Customers benefit from close ties between VTG's three divisions: Railcar, Rail Logistics and Tank Container Logistics. This collaboration creates a powerful, results-driven platform for international freight transportation – a platform that delivers custom-tailored logistical solutions and possesses a wealth of expertise in the transportation of liquids and hazardous goods, where safety is of the essence.

The Group's wagon hire, wagon manufacturing and maintenance activities are complemented by a separate sales organization. In addition, VTG AG, its subsidiaries and its affiliates draw on the resources of various pool systems, as well as offering to manage external wagon fleets. Our tank containers comply with all relevant statutory norms, prescriptions and material requirements and are deployed for transportation by road, rail and sea. Our customers expect industry-specific solutions that reflect the quality and effectiveness of a true global player. Which is exactly what they get from VTG, every time.

A large number of respected companies across a broad spectrum of industries – chemicals, petroleum, automotive engineering and suppliers, the paper industry, you name it – take advantage of our services, concepts and products. VTG AG is an established player in the German and international transportation market. Its shares are traded on the Prime Standard segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and quoted in the SDAX small cap index.

Manufacturer Information:
The company was founded in 1960 by Ing. Heinz Rössler and started with a plastic Minitanks series of military vehicles. After export to the USA became successful, the model line was expanded with model trains in HO scale and the smaller N scale. TT scale was also subsequently added to the product line. The model rail product line covers many European countries including Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Spain, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands, and also the USA.

On July 15, 2005 ROCO Modellspielwaren GmbH was declared bankrupt. From July 25 the company continues as Modelleisenbahn GmbH, but still uses the Roco brand and associated logo. On October 1, 2007, distribution of the 'Minitank' product series was assigned to the German model car manufacturer Herpa.

Since February 2008 Modelleisenbahn also owns Fleischmann, which like Roco had gone bankrupt. The two companies continue as separate brands under Modelleisenbahn GmbH, while benefiting from economies of scale through joined development projects, marketing and procurement.
