Gorgeous models, as always...



that said, at $40 a pop I doubt I'll have a traffic jam worth of them on the layout. Probably just head over to Royale Models and get four times as many for the same price, or finally break down and do the M6 EMM dump body pallet for the PLS...

Did TW have a high side dump body available before ?  Or did people fabricate them for the custom builds I've seen ?  Good candidate for 3D prints perhaps.

The only dump beds that Trainworx has offered (as "truck parts" for a few months in 2016) is are the ones shown below, which is are the same beds used for this release.  I purchased the parts to build these trucks trucks from Pat at the 2016 National N Scale Convention. 




Any N scale high side dump body on a Trainworx truck would have to be a kitbash or a custom build. 

However, Showcase Miniatures offers a dump body with high sides.  Here is the link for the complete truck kit https://www.showcaseminiatures.net/n_scale/n_scale_vehicles/76.html, and here is the link for just the bed https://www.showcaseminiatures.net/n_scale/n_scale_vehicle_details/550.html 

And here is my attempt to build the Showcase KW dump truck.

People complain about reservations and pre-ordering, but in this case it worked for me.  My trucks arrived today, from N Scale Supply.  In spite of the current price there being $41.95, they honored the $33.56 price on my reservation!

They're also already sold out.

As always, that was fully expected.

I thought it might be fun to have a "family photo" of the new dump trucks.

Somebody pinch me!  These do not look like N scale models.

Yeah, they certainly make those Bachmann dump trucks from the 70's look like a bunch of turds.

George is a good guy.  I've bought items from him at local train shows for years.
