PC: PC aluminum trailers by Athearn

This is a recent development, as the tractor/trailer set used to come 
with a green trailer. I'll have to pick up a new set. Athearn has 
been doing this a lot lately, redoing the paint jobs on existing 
stock numbers without announcing the change. Another example is the 
NYC SDP-40, whih now sports the 'Cigar band' herald on the cab. (I 
know, NYC never had SDP-40s.)
