Input needed:

I'm trying to come up with decorations/signage for another batch of 1956 box trucks that we are planning to produce and I am looking for suggestions. What are you guys looking for and what do you find attractive (color, branding, etc.). All help is welcomed!

Thank you,
Mark the Menards Train Guy

Mark, The 'Helmet' COE was manufactured between 1948 and 1956 which overlaps the  Railway Express Agency. Any layout modeling a time between 1948 and about 1970 could use a few of your trucks as REA delivery and pickup vehicles.  Various advertising panels would be appropriate.  A second color on the fenders would add to the cost. Both models shown are as they came from the factory.

A removable box cargo compartment would allow the modeler to change the unit to a flat bed truck or a semi tractor.  Flexibility ought to sell more models.
