    53 foot Fedex trailer (a previous release)

    Earlier this month, Trainworx announced that it will re-release its 53' trailers. These trailers will be available at the same time as the company's new Freightliner Cascadia tractors (very popular modern class 8 tractor).

    Pre-orders for these trailers are due by November 30, 2017 with an estimated summer 2018 delivery.

    These trailers will run $23.95 and come in 5 versions: Xtra reefer, Xtra dry van, Xtra dry van with skirting, Hyudai dry van and Wabash reefer.

    Here is a link to Trainworx's Product Announcements Page. Here is a link to previous Trainworx 53 foot trailer releases on TroveStar.

    Thank you for this update.
    I love their Tractor and Trailer work, but it is curious to me as one of the more top tier manufacturers of that product line why they have not tapped into the Hopper trailer business.

    I have to believe that is an untouched market.

    Yes, but not just unique custom-they should offer a few basics models similar to the series of trailer vans produced.
    I did put that one on preorder when I first had seen the release.

    They have generic versions of the grain trailer and the dry bulk coming. I’m excited for them, I need both to finish some scenes on my layout.

    Now that is Great News! Thanks for the update. I have 2 scenes needing that type of model badly.
