New MTH SEARS Trailers!

Stock Yard Express custom run link here - https://stockyardexpressllc.com/special-runs/

Thanks to the tip and extra effort from Mr. Muffin, I discovered these new custom items. The lack of good MFG’s marketing has always been a mood point in this hobby.

Thanks Steve

Received my Western Auto TOFC yesterday.

The trailers are very colorful and well done.

My childhood bike ( a great 3 speed...top of the line in the 50's) was from Western Auto.

I worked at that store for 2 summers and 2 Christmas seasons while in college. We sold and installed millions (at least it seemed like that many) tires, exhaust systems, batteries, brakes, tune ups, etc and 5 vans full of assembled bikes  (for Christmas). It seemed to me like I assembled all the bikes and put them in the vans for customers to pick up (all were on lay-away). Most customers came for their bikes the day before Christmas. I was pretty busy getting them out of the trailers and tying them to the roof or the trunks of cars (wish people had SUVs back then!).

These vans and the picture of the bike on the side being back many memories.



Thanks to Clyde and Stockyard Express.

Thanks Guys, glad to help.

They will navigate O36 curves but are a bit on the high side. Email me if you need them decorated as I did on mine.

They can be lowered with a simple mod pioneered by Dave at Mercer Junction.

Here is a before and after. Cut the bolster nub flush and reinsert it from the top of the frame. Lowers the car by about 3/16". Ramps and curbs added. Lionel car on the right.

I called today for the Sears trailers and they are sold out.   Darn!

They are taking back orders, so if you are interested, please call them and place an order.  No deposit was requested.  Obviously the more people order, the better the chances of a second run.

Email sent to Andy & Mark Hipp at MTH to make more. Also requested to produce trailers without the flat as well.
