Just three comments: If you opt to make the 1st one, it requires american cars to fill it; if you plan to make the 2d, we need NA-typic long trailers - 40' to 48', I guess. For now we only have these unusual old BTTB 40'ers: http://www.modelleisenbahn-schirmer.de/ ... dukt12.htm.
The other both shouldn't be so problematic, containers in different sizes (20', 40', 48') are already available.

However I'm all out, sorry. I've no need for those cars.

1 - if we model 1990s or 2000s, there are some modern cars. I am sure Mercedes or BMW are suitable for America?
Also, I've found the modern american cars somewhere, but I do not remember the site...

2 - maybe, the Herpa trucks ?

But as for me, I prefer steam and early diesel era...

1 - What Arseny said: any modern car works.

Unfortunately, I can't say I have much interest in these at all... much too modern.

Ok, I vote for the container carrier (#3). I'll dig around and see if I can find some tech drawings.

I suggest to build something that can be used both in 1950s as well as in modern era.
Some of us prefer steam locomotives (as for me, for example ;) ) - and I'll like to have the new wagon that I can use with my Consolidation locomotive.
From the other side, the SD45 started in 1965. Some of them are still in service, but very rare. So the good era for SD45 is 1970s-1980s.

Maybe, grain hopper?

Another idea: maybe, build some technical equipment? A crane, for example, or snow plough?
