We have to look good to our customers you know.
We are still using this as a peddle and switch trailer. Everytime I pick it up somewhere, I deadline it because it has holes in the floor and ceiling.
How old do you think this trailer is? I'm gonna guess early 90s. I had a rail van in the shop's check bay one time when I was running the road and it was old....I asked the mechanic how old he thought it was and he walked over to the computer, typed in the trailer number and it said built in 1979.

Yeah it is a 92 series. That thing might be older than me.
Wow... I almost thought it was a 39 series trailer.
I have deadlined it at least 3 times, every time it gets put back in service.
Every time I take a rail van anywhere that does not have proper door ties (just has rope, cable, twine etc), I deadline those too...And everytime, they don't get fixed. Indy has a very tight yard. Barely enough room to crank the landing gear between trailers sitting at the dock. There is barely room for swing doors as it is so having a swing door that is being literally held open by a thread just isn't gonna do it.
all you have to do is take the regerestion card out of its holder it will say what year it is!!!!!!!!!!!
