Because I enjoy modeling from the prototype, I am including here photos of both the real locomotives, rolling stock, and structures that I am building for my model railroad.

45′ Refrigerated Martrac Trailer on a flat car, left side.
This is a model of a typical 45′ trailer on a flat car. This trailer is the McKean 45’ trailer. Accurail now provides this trailer separately and with some of their 89’ flat car kits. The decals are Microscale HO Mini-Cal MC-4171. The refrigerator compressor comes with the older Athearn 40 trailers, hard to find now. The fuel tanks are A-Line Proto Power West short tanks part # 50108. These trailers need some weathering for sure.
I have photos of this car taken in Streator, Illinois taken years ago. I have not been able to find them, but I will add them when they are found. They reinforce that the Athearn compressor is a good match.
