    Yes they are wonderful releases and will add greatly to the N-Scale world. One prominent N-Scale modeler is in for the whole fleet and extras of some. Deb & I have been lucky enough to experience his layout twice.

    I always thought it would be cool for a manufacture to specialize in one RR, even if only for one month.
    I was wrong... my wallet is showing me this black, not green, hole.

    Now excepting D&RGW "wood packer" donations.

    Check out the Trainworx website.
    Pat has posted the eras for each one there.
    As for the 1980's, the City Market, RG Motorways, and Action Railroad trailers were still around then. I don't remember seeing the other D&RGW trailers for sure and the Coors is a unknown to me.
    Just a side note, the City Market trailers and others were usually put on the #95 train behind an empty caboose, with the rear-end crew in a trailing caboose, which were cut off in GJ. The new crew would get on the front caboose, the #95 would whistle off, and the GJ trailers would be moved to the unloading ramp. Not too many pictures of this train exist as it was a night train.

    Tell me more about the "City Market" trailer... I've never heard of this. Was this something one would find in the western states in the 1950's to 1970?

    I am going to order 3 or 4 of these trailers if I can determine which were most likely in the early 1960s. The flatcars have a build date of 1959. I take it these are in the original scheme?

    I am slowly building up a mostly 1960s era TOFC collection, and Trainworx has been helping this along.
