B&H tank car #14 is at MNGM.
It appears #13 wore out and was replaced by #22 by just remounting the tank on #22.
Question?? Where is the tank?  #22 is trash but the tank remains.
A search today of the MNGM property did not reveal the remaining tank.
Several people on site said it was "back in the weeds". A search revealed three small tanks, but nothing the size of #22.
Anyone know?

And yet another mystery starts. Last I knew, one has been restored to operational? and was stored near the main line, near the engine house. The other I thought was in the weeds next to the plow, or in that area.

Yep. That was the (eventual) outcome of this thread. Ira found the tank and the WW&F purchased it from MNG.
