I like the Vac tanker trailer. Where do you find one of those?
I looked and can't find. Is that 1/87? Looks larger.

I used to haul many single bore 307 Stainless tankers like that.
Without the vac setup, but single bore center domed chemical tankers.

The Cracker box tractor would make a nice yard horse with a back door cut in.
Or maybe you call it a yard jockey?
Add a magnet bar to the front bumper. And an AC box on the top. :)

We call 'em "Yard Goats" or "Humpers"
(for Yard Marshals).


I did these in 2018...
A Sylvan cannonball, and a CMW.
I customized the CMW with a vertical stack and flaps... things that most CMW's lack.

'Round h'year we call 'em yard dogs.

Actually saw a cab-over tractor on the road last week. Rare sight these days.
