    Ho=1/87 ???

    Where's the basketball scouts at? That guy can climb the roof with no problem. My dad sets up a Christmas layout every year I think the train is S or O. He bought figures from all over and none were the correct size.

    Storing scale vehicles?

    I've found some small white boxes at Staples years ago. You had to fold them yourself. I could fit tractor & trailer in boxes about five in each box. I used these boxes when I was moving.

    Trailers for Malibu Trucks?

    Hopefully one day they will make trailers. Like a nice flatbed or gooseneck lowboy with heavy equipment on it. Kinda like the Lonestar spreadaxle with the toolboxes and alloy rims:)

    HO trailers for TOFC cars...

    The Athearn blue box 45's are true to scale for that time period. Now depending on the era you are modeling those trailers are perfect. The opening width from interior sidewall to sidewall was 96". As the years went by the opening got wider 102" and now days 110". I believe this is the widest...

    HO trailers for TOFC cars...

    A-line makes 28' pups exterior posts (ribbed) and interior posts (smooth side)also angle back versions. 45,48,53's are also available. Ahtearn is good also and more modern. Atlas makes a nice 45'Pines trailer with some nice detail. Trucks & Stuff is good also but can be pricey.
