How about this?  Would it pass as a submarine?

I saw this tank conversion just a few blocks north of my home.  Apparently it is in regular use transporting oil for a road repair crew.  The conversion was well done, at least well enough to pass the provincial highways department inspection.  I guess old tankers never die as long as they stay well oilled.

I have seen a lot of dump trucks that were made out of tank cars.

Now, if  only some one could convert one to a back yard barbaque. I wonder how many bags of charcoal would be needed?

Jet,
They got the tanker where it needed to go... That's all that counts.

As for this Rail Roader stuff,
You know, I saw this comming when Intermodal picked up. You could load freight on a truck too. Well, to save good ol' boxcars and tankers, they made them road capadiable too!

Cheers,
Joshua
