New Lionel 40’ PFE Reefer trailer with Revell 50s Kenworth

6I bought these Pacific Fruit Express reefer trailers a while back and they are nice. There actually about 35’ but that’s ok for the era these old trailers were in service. The 50s Revell Kenworth I build several years ago and I have gave it a update with a chrome pin. Enjoy the pics

Chris. Thank you

John. Thanks, I know it is that’s why chose to keep it a day cab that’s what I do for a living I haul sea cans I go about 200mi radius of the rail yards been doing this for 22yrs pulled lots of these pig trailers till they phased them out. Here’s a pic of me hooked to a non powered reefer. Customers use these for insulated boxes when they really don’t need a reefer but still need the protection from the heat and cold

Nice work sir!

Had high hopes for these until they arrived at the local store. Why tool and make a scale trailer the wrong size???

Technically they are 37.5' long ....

 Slightly longer than a Weaver 35' trailer but short for a 40' trailer. If Lionel only made them scale length it would have been a real hit!
