Werner Enterprises Percyville Terminal in HO Scale
Part of HO Scale Desert Layout Project - 20/22
On my Mojave Desert Layout, Werner Enterprises built a Terminal in the City of Percyville.
To make it as real as possible, Pitsch Allneider created some one of a kind Werner Enterprises Models.

 53' Intermodal Container for Werner Global Logistics in HO Scale
Copyright by DigComDesigns (item # WGL5311)
Below are the first samples using the artwork of DigComDesigns just printed on cardboard.
 
 
As we can see, the result is not satisfactory. Therefore, Pitsch Allneider was creating a plain scale body out of styrene to paste the printed artwork. In other words, he custom built the whole container. No question, I am very pleased with the result. It looks so realistic, even it is a smooth surface. Excellent job, Pitsch - thank you very much. (Photos above by Pitsch Allneider)
Here is a short introduction, how everything started. While browsing the internet, I realized that Werner Enterprises got some intermodal containers on rail services. So, I wanted to have some for my HO scale layout to fit my Percyville Terminal of Werner Enterprises. I was asking my friend Pitsch, if he could custom paint some undecorated 48' containers in Werner Blue color and add proper decals. Pat Chaney of Werner Enterprises supplied some artwork. Just before we started, we realized that 48' containers are not correct because they should be 53' long. While checking the internet again, we found DigComDesigns, who made the exact artwork for the correct 53' Werner Container. As seen above, the cardboard was not perfect, Pitsch printed it on self adhesive paper and wrapped it around the custom made container body shell (see below).

On May 2015, I made a new photo shooting of the Werner Enterprises Percyville Terminal from the air.
Overview of the WE Terminal. A WE Truck is entering the site. There are several WE Trailers on Flat Cars. - 1492
on the left side are the WE shops - 1493 at the bottom is the WE Terminal Office - 1494

 

Werner Enterprises is celebrating their 60th Anniversary in 2016 (6 photos added 3/30/16)
A 60 Years billboard was mounted on the front of the warehouse. On the other side I mounted a Werner Global Logistics sign.
In real life, Werner was founded 60 years ago - 2420 So, it was a must to create a huge billboard - 2421
the new sign can easy be seen from main street - 2422 the size is 60 x 65 mm (approx. 5,2 x 5,6 m) - 2423
here is the new Werner Global Logistics sign - 2424 2016 reflects 60 years of Werner Trucking - 2425

The Percyville Terminal got some custom made and exclusive vehicles by Pitsch Allneider
This special trailer was custom made by Pitsch and the pickup truck is a modified River Point model. Great job and one of a kind.
This trailer is not just phantasy because Werner Enterprises did once sponsor a dragster.
Werner Enterprises got a twin axle trailer, custom made by Pitsch Allneider.
This Ford F-350 Super Duty Pickup Truck is based on a River Point model, customized and weathered by Pitsch Allneider
This 1964 Dodge A100 Van (made by Brekina) was from the early days of Werner Enterprises. It sure needs a new Werner decal in front.
The first Van Pitsch made for my Terminal back in 2008

Werner Diesel Locomotive in HO Scale
Die grosse Transportfirma "Werner Enterprises" mit Sitz in Omaha, NE (USA) ist eine der 5 Grossen in den USA. Da mein Vornamen "Werner" ist, habe ich eine Athearn (Blue Box) GE AMD-103 zu meiner persönlichen Lok gemacht. Die Lok wurde von Ferdinand Rat gespritzt und mit Werner Ent. Decals von A-Line beschriftet. Mehr Bilder von dieser Lok auf einem Diorama: click here

Last but not least, the host of this website, Werner Meer, feels somehow familiar with WE because his first name is Werner.
