ORDER DEADLINE ALERT – Athearn HO Scale 53 ft Jindo Containers

You must place an order for any of these products NOW if you want


An intermodal container is a large standardized shipping container, designed and built for intermodal freight transport, meaning these containers can be used across different modes of transport – from ship to rail to truck – without unloading and reloading their cargo. Fifty-three foot containers such as this model are commonly used in domestic US/North American situations where increased capacity is needed. Corrugating the sheet metal used for the sides and roof contributes significantly to the container’s rigidity and stacking strength, just like in corrugated iron or in cardboard boxes. Domestic containers have castings with openings for twistlock fasteners inset and centered 40’ apart from each of the eight corners, to allow gripping the box from above, below, or the side, and they can be stacked up to ten units high for storage.
