The Gods are still (seemingly) available on the UK online store (and the other discontinued sets have been taken off already) so I tried to snap them up while I could

The buildings look great. The store is excellent. The apartment above is cool, but I may take the old camera and turn it into a portrait studio instead.

I really like that idea, Tim!

I think they've done a great job with all the Western sets, especially with the furniture.  I'll likely be purchasing one of each.

I find it peculiar that Geobra chose that particular truck. In the states it’s called a “low boy” used for moving extremely heavy, large or tall equipment. In this case the load is a converted shipping container. I really like the shipping concept as there are so many possibilities but a different truck is more suited for the job .

This truck

If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

American thing maybe? That truck and trailer unit is pretty typical of cargo trucks in New Zealand and I assume Germany. America seems to have more trucks with long engine compartments.

I guess I didn’t explain correctly .

It’s the trailer not the truck. We in the US have plenty of cab over trucks (our county is big so sleeper cabs with the engine out front of the cab are more common)

The trailer is a low boy trailer , and shipping container trailers are different

No, the PM trailer is a shipping container one.

With the "lowboy" the load area is at or below the height of the top of the wheels while the PM one has the load area above the top of the wheels.

That PM trailer is common in the UK and pretty well world wide for shipping containers.  For a short time the design was simply a skeleton of a central spine and two or three cross pieces, one at the front and one at the back and one in the centre, but these had the problem of the trailer and load twisting around the central spine and the trailer and load overturning as the vehicle negotiated roundabouts and so went out of use.

Strangely enough, this happened not because the truck was going too fast but because it was going too slow for the torsional forces operating no the trailer.

No it’s not

This is a low boy trailer, you’ll notice the stepped down deck for tall loads and the ramps for loading equipment



This is a shipping container trailer , it’s a strait across deck





Geobra used to get it correct but lately they have been using the low boy for shipping containers .

I don't pay much attention to the truck sets so I thought you were saying the picture in your post was the lowboy trailer unit but you were showing what you felt should have been in that set. Confusion resolved. :elf:
