I've felt for a long time that the 8-wide original Lego tanker is too wide. Below you can see an attempt to create a tank wagon in 6-wide scale.
The tank has a smaller diameter than the 8-wide version, using Viking-wheels. Also I added a kind of "bent" ladder.
Unfortunately, during the photoshoot, the worker slipped, almost resulting in a nasty accident.  :wink:

Hi,

I always love the simple, but amazing waggons. The only problem with this creation that there is only one waggon. :) Do you plan to build another tanker waggons to create a freight train?

It looks very simple and yet amazingly efective.
A full train of these would make an awesome sight.
very nice use of the old laddre piece btw, you don't see that piece very often any more.
