Very cool trailer! Will it go on a train layout? I could see it sitting near the tracks, maybe weathered a bit with some junk and a rusty car beside it.

Posted ImageThat's what they are supposed to be for. I'm planning to build a trailer park diorama, from about 1961. I did weather a City Classics HO scale '55 Nashua kit. Here's a few pics.

Yeah, that's just what I had in mind! Nice work on the weathering. I'm thinking that fallen tree would have gone through the roof right to the floor of an old trailer like that! :o I hope you post pics of the diorama.
