Hi all you O scale car and truck fans!  I’ve been working on trailers to populate my TOFC service on my railroad. More about that later.  

I’ve completed a couple new trailers that will be in use.  The Vermont Railwaytrailer has just been delivered, in use at a Waterbury CT warehouse.  It’s a kit from Berkshire Valley, with Scalecoat II and custom decals.  BV wheels and Din Mills Dollie’s.
  The lobster truck uses a placard made from a “Cousins Lobster Truck” container obtained at an appearance at a local 5D51100D-E265-4A3E-B490-4567834CDD874661C321-2413-444A-97B6-60964E34341C6973A736-8BD0-4068-818F-D320B4761BE87DEC76B2-5F79-4913-AC07-3F1E11123C99A01A7F51-5B5F-4009-9562-64B5E17908E2CB6C4C07-7968-4954-A5DF-96FA82B593F7CB6C4C07-7968-4954-A5DF-96FA82B593F7winery.  That’s another story.  The trailer started as a Champ of the Road.  Scalecoat II, placards and details assorted…

Ordered 4 of the Menard's '56 trucks and the Army Power Wagon I didn't order the last time.  While the Sinclair air would make a great scene with Dino and a Sinclair Station I've got a Texaco and a Shell station.  So I ordered the Texaco tanker, the County dump truck, the Fire pumper and the Pepsi box truck.  The order has already shipped so I'll post pics when I get them.

Don. Thanks for sharing very nice trailers they look good. I’ve pull many of those Vermont piggybacks in my day.

The Saturday night car rally is in full-swing as the landscapers finish up for the Sunday daytime import rally...the owner of the door company is always generous with the use of his lot by other "car buffs..."

Mr Paul sorry I haven’t been post here been busy with my new job trying to get all I can before we stop for the winter. Nice pics as always thanks for sharing

My New Haven railroad is still using some repainted telephone trucks from their WWII surplus acquisitions.  OK, so it’s really a 1/48 3D printed kit from a French company GAS O LINE.  This is not for the faint of heart—lots of tricky fitting and careful attention to logic in the assembly, since all the material is printed in French😬and no, I don’t speak or understand it.  It’s the challenge….

This isn't new but I never posted it.  I wanted an airport fire truck for my planned air field / air museum but at the time those types of trucks were very high dollar.  Seeing inexpensive airport fire trucks recently made me remember this one.  I found it in the toy aisle, it's a Disney Cars Rescue Ryker model.  Like all Cars characters it had eyes in the windshield.  I found a picture of the front of an airport fire truck, scaled it to fit, printed it on label paper and we have a windshield instead of eyes.

Since my layout will have very little scale fidelity the lack of details on this toy is not an issue.  I think it looks pretty good and will fill the role very well.

Nice little fire truck Coach.

Hi guys, I know it's been a while and I am sorry for that. Between Honey Doo's here and a quick trip to North Dakota to see the in-laws there is nothing really new. I did pick up a few cars from Menards the local gas station there, just haven't gotten the time to even unpack them! LOL

@coach joe Joe I love the fire engine! I need to find one for my small airfield!

@Capetrainman Paul, your town is always busy, between meetings, the guys trying to impress the ladies and all the commuters it is amazing anyone ever gets some sleep! LOL I love all your town shots!

@Michael Hokkanen Michael wonderful video of your layout! Your city is a nice draw to your layout!

Well I hope to get some time tomorrow to unpack some stuff and I will try to get some photos for you all!

Mike good to see you maybe I can get back to building some trucks for the layout soon
