So I am not the only one asking about that Smile | :) Now that there are two of us, I took the time to see if Wikipedia could help me, and found this:

Due to trailers initially being shown after, or "trailing", the feature film, the term "trailer" was used to describe the promotion; despite it coming before, or "previewing", the film it was promoting. This practice was found to be somewhat ineffective, often ignored by audiences who left immediately after the film.

So, historically, they were trailing the main feature. Thanks for making me look it up Smile | :)
