Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Pacific Motor Transport Freightliner Truck Tractor Fleet - By Kevin Shanahan

Pacific Motor Transport (PMT) was the trucking arm of Southern Pacific Railroad and in many cases the PMT tractors were used to move Pacific Fruit Express refrigerated trailers at piggyback break points along the railroad. These models from Kevin Shanahan were kitbashed Athearn Freightliner tractors, some made into short wheelbase, day cab configuration, and others into longer wheelbase sleeper and non-sleeper configurations. The wheels and tires are from A-Line; the PFE trailers were built from Athearn kits.
