New!  N scale 40' Waffle-side piggyback trailer

This easy-to-assemble resin and styrene kit makes a 1960's-1970's heavy-duty 40' piggyback trailer with the distinctive waffle-sides.  Resin keeps the finish both smooth and lightweight without sanding or filling.

Trailers of this type were heavy steel and typically painted various shades of boxcar red.  These trailers were seen under the banners of XTRZ XTRA Leasing,  and also flagged for B&OZ among others.  

These trailers are easy to spot it period photos - look for the distinctive side ribs and lower height.   They are an 'original' 12' high trailer - 8' width design that rapidly became obsolete with the advent of the 45' length in the later 1970's.

EVERYTHING INCLUDED  - Wheels, axles, landing gear included, along with .010 styrene for side lettering plates and mud flaps, and .035 styrene rod for axles.  

 

Even more features: 

Rivets on front bulkhead along with cast-in utility box  
Four latch/door levers cast on rear
Rear bumper/crash guard as separate part
Standard-sized fifth wheel pin fits most piggyback trailer castings
Finished trailer weighs just 8.5 grams
