Like the original Marx, Marx Trains did not make a lot of variety in tank cars. Unlike the original Marx, Marx Trains did not make both 6" and scale tank cars, only 6" and they were either 4 or 8 wheel. Another color or two will show up when I do sets. The White Sinclair seems to be a tough one to find.

Were all "modern" tank cars tab and slot couplered, or were any offered with the tilt forks?

The Marathon car has tilt couplers. Any of them could be ordered either way. On the secondary market your stuck with what you can find. Luckily they will work together, but without the auto coupling advantage. FYI, the modern tilt couplers work with the original Marx uncoupler units.
