    Can’t have a railroad without trucks to service industry. So I worked to come up with several trucking companies that were around in the 1960s.

    SeaLand was the first US container company established in 1960, this is a Marklin container on a Shapeways container trailer.

    The Roadway truck was custom made for me by João Marrafa de Carvalho (JMC) https://www.facebook.com/JMC-Scale-Models-341193572911400/

    The Preston, Yellow, JB Hunt, Old Dominion, and Consolidated Freightways are NSM decals from The N Scale Architect https://thenarch.com/products/40-trailer-or-containers-z

    I made the ABL decals by cutting and pasting from the internet.

    The tractors and the trailers are from various Z scale makers or custom made for me by friends.

    Enjoy!

    John

    Can almost hear the honking and yelling, and those diesels running like it was real, back in the day!

    Real nice if you think you have enough trucks…better get more! Always room for more trucks.

    i really like the variety though in type style and age.
