    Default Transformer load

    A brand new transformer just arrived at my contractor's yard, hence the tie-downs have been removed already

    Those trucks were produced for quite a few years.

    If those trucks with the stripes are going to the U.S. Postal Service, than the trucks shouldn't arrive for another couple of decades. Before that, the various vehicles used were dark blue body with upper half in white with a red stripe. Check out the old Bachmann/Model Power truck pack for the scheme on a delivery van.

    It sounded like a good idea at the time... too bad the caboose wasn't in on the plan.

    I used to travel and show with The New Mexico Railrunners and was often asked questions about the tiny loco and motors, so I put this together. Seems that a picture is better than words.......................................
