The article is devoted to the front burner problem of effective exploitation of industrial tank-wagons with the presence of residual operation time. The procedure of valuation of tank-cars' residual operation time for liquid gas transportation was proposed first. Key technical and exploitation parameters of the tank-wagon model 15-1408-10 according to testing loads that simulate loads in real exploitation were approved. The calculation, which, as against existent ones for valuation of universal

The proposed procedure can be adapted for use during valuation of freight cars' residual operation time, or for other means of transport and machineries.
