Oil Storage Tank with Flashing Light
A variation to the tooling first used for the Diesel Horn and Oil Storage Tank, 1979 sees the introduction
of Bachmann's Oil Storage Tank with Flashing Light. The 1979 price for this item was $6.00.
A very common practice among all model train manufacturers is the mutilple-utilization
of molds. Tooling originally designed for one item, often finds itself recycled or modified and used in another product
offering. The Diesel Horn and Oil Storage Tank shown above was the first use Bachmann got from this design, it was followed
by the Oil Storage Tank with Flashing Light.
