Dual Era Structure, Part III — 1990

By the time the 1990s rolled around, only a few large trucking firms were thriving.  Consolidated Freightways managed to continue having success and hung on until 2002.

I’ve always liked their logo and image.  CF had its roots in Portland, OR, but grew to have a presence across the nation.

The structure is nicely “forward dated” by switching out the PIE trailers and tractors for CF equipment.

And parking the right kinds of cars around it.

It doesn’t really generate freight traffic for the railroad, but it does add a nice industry to enhance the overall realism of the layout.

Overall. I am please with the result.  The price for the terminal was sure right since I had all the parts to the building on hand.

Trailers were getting bigger by 1990 as the 48′ trailer attests.

Hapy railroading! (whether it be the 1990s, 1960s or whenever)
