Athearn RTR logo


Athearn has announced new RTR 45' Containers


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. 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. International containers have castings with openings for twistlock fasteners 40’ apart on 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.



Factory assembled with many detail parts applied

Three different road numbers per pack

Some SKUs feature multiple logos and/or decoration variations



Duplicated look and feel of “In Service” equipment; “Tattered and Torn” just like the real thing

Faded base colors matched to the prototype

Patches applied and shaped per road number matching each corresponding side to the prototype

Perfect starting point for adding grime and rust
