    I have emailed Kato regarding them releasing the Volvo tractors, in a manner as did Atlas, in two packs or something of the like. In their reply, the only thing they said was "the price point we have is for both tractor and trailer. Thank you for contacting us here at Kato USA", along those lines. It kinda pissed me off as they didn't answer my question/request very well, and only thing I got from it was, tough luck, buy the set and sell the trailer.

    Also, Atlas just released in O Scale a model of a Freightliner with sleeper, seen it on their Facebook page a little while back. I told them they need to release that tractor in N Scale, to go along with all their Pines Trailer releases.

    Wasn't Wheels of Time conducting a bit of a survey recently on some trucks they had in mind?

    It was classic metal works that had the survey.

    Oh, yes. That's right. That truck they announced is one I'd be interested in.

    Ad me to the list for a Transtar. I need any COE from the 1970's.

    It's a Geep/Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand.

    I agree with all. We really need a good array of 70-80's tractors. Would LOVE to see an IH Transtar II in N-Scale as my dad owned one of these during the early 80's.

    I personally would like to see some modern bottom dump type grain trailer's. Then if you have a Walther's grain elevator with railcar loading on one side you can line up a few tractor trailer's on the other side.

    I would love to see some IH trucks anywhere from the 70's forward.
