Set of 4 classic railway trucks all B & O
"With the completion in the early 1930's, of a system of two-lane roads connecting population centers, it was possible to travel around the country on a smooth all-weather highway system. The rise in automobile use caused railroads to shift their focus from passenger service to freight hauling to stay in business. These factors together with the development of the diesel engine gave rise to the trucking industry. Trucks became a vital link between rail freight terminals and consumers, and remains so today"
