The latest Trainworx announcement contains artwork illustrations for a P-S 85' fishbelly flatcar decorated for Great Northern, as well as a style assortment of Great Northern and Northern Pacific 40' vans.

I wonder what years the trailers are from. I know the two GN big sky blue trailers would be later 60's.

The Empire Builder schemed trailer was the earliest of those schemes and I've seen pics of them running in the late 60s.  I wish I could get to like Big Sky Blue.

I've only been able to resist (most) of the Trainworx trailers because they are WAY out of my (modern) era, with the exception of the UPS trailers...which I have plenty of. If they start doing more modern trailers, it's all over for me! The detail work and paint on their trailers is ridiculous! :o

I can honestly say I'll be purchasing almost everything on that flyer.
I’m not here to argue

I wanna be a "better" GN fan, really I do.  I can't get past the simplified scheme though.
