CN Piggyback Trailmobile
« on: July 21, 2019, 01:33:00 AM »
Found this cool 1970's(?) Canadian Trailmoble with spread axle the other day. There are a lot of movie Industry truck/trailers here too and it is hooked into one of their trucks, I wonder if it is going to get a 2nd life or if it is intended for a movie shoot, no one around to ask.

looks like a 45 footer or maybe a 48?

it looks to be in descent condition, minus one door but it seems like it isn't all bruised and battered. Thought the number would come up clearer with a close up but not so. It looks like
CNPZ
200194

Jim.

That is quite an interesting catch, hopefully it'll be saved and restored...

... but I seriously doubt that, knowing the movie industry it'll either be set on fire or blown up.
Possibly hit by a train or a truck. ::)

Maybe it's a movie about restoring old trucks and trailers?
I would actually consider watching a movie about that. ;D

Nice catch!

Yeah......maybe, and I would watch a show of that nature too! Hopefully I can find someone around there to ask someday, maybe they will repaint it and use it in their fleet?

I like your CNPZ trailer Jim.
I hope it doesn't get destroyed.

Better to save the trailer & blow up the boring white FL hooked to it. ;D

Well; I can't let this opportunity pass by.
The Shoe is on the other foot!
Jim is posting a picture of an actual trailer while I have a model!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now there's one for the books!
(realising that if Jim built a model of the 45 foot CN trailer it would be much more detailed than mine)
