back at the start of the summer i made some sides for the trailor for the roadrailer to carry ballast as they were talking of using a dogfish truck for the train to put ballast down but would have cost a grand to transport and another grand to send it home after we finished so for just a grand i made 4 sides to fit the large flatbed tralior

thanks rob the idea for the trailor sides had to go through the right channels first past the higher up's lol but it was a no brainer as the sides can be taken off to make it a flatbed again or you can leave the ends in with no sides aswell
