    Thanks all for the nice comments, very much appreciated.

    Yes Vic, the two purple Pete's are 3D prints from Shapeways and were created by "N Scale Addict", I think his name is John. Actually the blue one is his too. I have also mentioned that the two dry bulk trailers are 3D prints done at home by Mark Watson. He is very top notch with the prints.

    When I was a lot younger back in the 1970's I drove a truck/trailer unit out of Albuquerque, New Mexico for Chevron. We had a Kenworth cab over day cab with tank and then the pup. Total capacity of mo-gas was 10K gallons and 8.4K of diesel. I really enjoyed the work and trucks just got into my blood. Also my back and kidneys, ouch. Sort of like steam engines did when I was a kid.

    Well OK the trucks look pretty, but do they work or are the drivers afraid of getting them dirty. Here they both are leaving Ewing Oil & Refining Co. after unloading cat cracker catalyst. Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.................
