These do look awesome. I will be picking up a few. Are the 351's coming out soon-?
And -- are these paint schemes appropriate for the mid '50's. (Or - as delivered)

Thanks,
Wolf

Train worx has been making some amazing stuff lately. The GS gondola really pushes the boundaries for N scale freight cars and gives HO a run for its money detail wise! These trucks keep up that tradition...

Wish Pat all the best and hope he can keep making awesome stuff for years to come!

If the 280s are out, the 351s must be as well.  Yes, these are appropriate for mid 1950s.

Damn. Seriously. Trainworx just seriously keeps creating amazing stuff. I've held off because they aren't high priority things for me, but it's been VERY tough.

I got mine a couple days ago too but didn't take a pic sans layout or diorama.  But since we're sharing... :)





The yellow one had the air filter busted off.  I'd be curious if anyone else gets one like that.

I picked up one of the 351's just to rebuild into a grain truck. I also picked up some spare parts for TW to build a grain pup trailer.

WTF? Never would have guessed that. They look like they could fit right in a modern traffic jam.

That's because many modern trucks retained their old look. Things like headlights have changed (and mechanically they are a bit different), but the overall shape has not changed much.

Luv to see one of those single axle tractors as an AMT 1/25 model.

That source says 1954 and later, not 1949. So what am I missing (other than a 1950 appropriate model)?

So like, these would have still been around in the mid 60s? (Wink Wink, Nudge Nudge)

280/350: This is the classic "iron-nose" conventional built from 1949 to 1957. It has distinctive cycle-type front fenders, and a long grille with vertical shutters.

You are good for 1950.
The Trainworx models aren't 281 and 351's as far as I know. different grill would be the main difference.
