You'll need some Southern Pacific Golden Pig Fleet trailers...  Used to see them all the time on TV trains...

Even with the explanation still make no sense me  :|

80s Intermodal work used by uncultured idiots?!

I must really be getting old. Plus English is my second language and I don't hang around urban hoods.  Not hacking it . . .

Hmm...that explanation is new to me.  I've understood it to mean "on point"; or great in a way that implies also being accurate.

That's how I used it. But also, jokingly, as a phrase that I know is stupid.

Ed those trailers are pretty clutch!
Way out of my primary era but very tempting...

Edit: need some weathering on those flats! Need sunglasses lookin at them! ;)

I'm glad to see that Atlas has upped their game on the decoration of these trailers.  In the old days we used to have to paint the side sills, hubs, and door hardware ourselves:

Those are way better! I originally thought the pics I saw at an online shop must have been HO models. Glad to see the upgrades!

Is he fleeking her?  Another use.

Yea, the new  MW flats I got from that place outside Baltimore are sweet. Love the grabs and air lines. The paint is awesome. See they are now mostly sold out.

Atlas did right on the trailers. Maybe 1 day they will offer more than just a 45 foot version? @Atlas Paul

This release and the MTL Erie Western trailers were the result of a thread here a few years ago. Glad to see they hit shelves.

Yep. I remember that thread, and I am STILL incredibly grateful for it!

And I agree about weathering. The flats, AND the trailers really need it. It's in the to-do list.
