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

Fantastic setup gives me ideas for my model railroad. Is that an O&K rubber-duck?

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
