With a Roadrailer “caboose”, too — haha! Those trains were fun to run— always set up in direct release like a freight train. That’s why after multiple spots shown here that you hear the engr “pulling hard” on the set with the piercing sound of the shoes and discs on the wheels.

You can see the difference in the MHC truck design between the 1400's and the 1500's.
I wonder how old those BX trucks were that were salvaged from former REA express refrigerator cars?
