> Jim, I've probably mainly only found a few photo's of PFE trailers built=
without the reinforcing gusset but I haven't searched for good resources t=
hus far. Now that I'm squarely in 40' trailer era I'm having to do new res=
earch. I have already carefully removed that gusset from one of my PFE typ=
e Athearn trailers, and it sounds more than likely the others should have i=
t deleted too.

el year PFE built trailers, such as the 61/62 vs. 64-66 period?


You mean Fruehauf built trailers. No, I have put together my own reference =
based on photos that I=E2=80=99ve found over the years.=20

For PFE there is Pacific Fruit Express, by Thompson, Church and Jones, Sign=
ature Press, which contains a full chapter on PFE=E2=80=99s intermodal flat=
s, trailers and containers with rosters and photos. But since you are model=
ing the Rio Grande you won=E2=80=99t need many PFE vans.

> I will watch for it on the MFCL list which I'm already a member of but re=
cently discovered an old email address was still active which is why I wasn=
't getting the digest emails. What is the request email for the ModelInterm=
odal list that I should follow?
