I'm now offering the WSF-P matrial option as this gives a fairly smooth finish, but does lose the sharp edges of features. Recent communications with customers suggest the White-Strong-Flexible material is more than suitable, but does need a primer-filler (Auto-shop, 'Duplicolour') paint to smooth out the 'powdery' finish. Similar to my '01' model, but with a larger diameter tank to match the bigger/modern prototypes more accurately. Please see the image of new (left) and old (right) trailer CAD models side by side for comparison. Wheel have now been 'fixed' to prevent manufacture problems. My thanks to Prof. Bill Guegold for pictures of his trailers. I look forward to seeing them all painted.

@train_guy . Thanks for your comments. I believe these trailers have been around even earlier than the 1970's. I've produced a Freuhauf design from a 1960's sales leaflet (take a look at the photos). My conveyer loader/unloader (transloader) should compliment any layout where a modeler wants a simple transloader siding.

Thanks for the info,and thanks for making these products avaliable to us Modellers...we really appreciate it.BTW I mentioned your products on a couple of Modell train forums and included a link to you website.I can't even begin to tell you how often i hear of moddellers loking for trailers like these,and the fact that these trailers have been around since the 70's and there has been no American manufacturers who has produced them in USA design.These will look sweet on my modern transloading facility.I will be adding Boley wheels and tires for my trailers,since they have more of a prototypical look to them.

@train_guy Not sure, but either way, it would be a simple job to either open up the hole in the Tractors fifth wheel using a drill bit in a pin-vice or carefully remove the 'cam' on the trailers pin. If this is not enough, either file the pin diameter smaller or remove and replace it with a new pin (styrene or brass rod).

Will the "pivot pin" fit on Boley 1/87 single axle tractors?

@trainman1 Many thanks for sharing the picture of my trailers on your layout. They do look pretty cool. I am in conversation with a graphic designer who is planning to create a decal sheet for my models. This may not happen for a while, but please check back with me in a few weeks. Have you seen my latest trailer releases? Shorty/pups with dolly, a 1000 & 1625 Superflo.

I have painted them and still need to find company signage and then weather them. Very nice detail on them both.
