Train-worx CGW Trailers

I got a nice package in the mail today.



Soooooo much decaling I don't have to do now!

CGW trailers and 85' flats... I have to build something to put these on.  :)

A huge thank you to Pat at Train-worx for doing these (flats too).  I only hope they sell well enough to do the other number series (with slight variation in the lettering).  As a reminder, CGW served the heart of the meat packing industry, so unless your RR is vegetarian, you might need a couple. ;)

If I can find one of those at Springfield it's coming home with me... Those are great!
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Those are nice.  What would be build dates for those?  I am guessing they are later than my era.  Like early 1970's?

Hi Paul,

The 504200 series is from 1964.  If you need to fudge a couple more years, the 504000 series looks nearly the same and were from 1962.

Do you know if the CB&Q C&NW & D C Trucking trailers have arrived. Also have the B&O C&O trailers and C&O 85' flatcars shipped yet.

I don't know about any of those, but if they were with the same pre-order as the CGW cars, I imagine they should be here soon.

Wow!!  I've been asleep at the wheel.  CGW will always have a special appeal for me.  Added to my list!

And from where did this package arrive?  Direct from Trainworx, by chance? I keep checking the MBK site and the trailers have yet to appear...
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Pat was nice enough to send me a couple for assistance with the artwork.  But they came in regular jewel boxes so I assume that they are not too far off.

MBK has them up on their site as of last night.

(They also have some Trainworx Santa Fe 85' flats for sale @ $9.95.)

That's what first tier railroads do.

There's a quick bit of trailer action at the beginning of this Hormel video.
