About this creation
A small trailer-mounted arrowboard used to direct traffic in road work zones. They are typically orange however due to my lack of orange pieces I made it in yellow, which is a second common color.

Comments are welcome and appreciated!









Here the trailer is attached to one of my set #4434 variants, which I modified to be able to pull a trailer. The trailer would typically be brought to the site behind a work truck.



The driver would then detach the trailer from the truck and lower its support...



...Then he would put on a secondary support for the trailer...



...And remove one, or both wheels. This is typically done to prevent theft of the trailer, especially when the trailer is going to stay somewhere for an extended period of time.



He would then raise the arrowboard using the crank on the back...



...And select the display pattern desired.



Just checking to make sure it's correct!



Then he would continue on his way!



Sometimes attenuator barrels will be placed behind the trailer to help protect it from being hit by vehicles.



Here is a close up of the re-working of the back of the truck to allow it to pull a trailer.

Thanks for visiting and looking at my creations, feel free to tell me what you think!

Great job! I personally think it looks very similar to the real arrow board.
