    Default 35ft Sea-Land Containers

    I've decided to talk about a type of non-standard length container. Sea-Land Service started with the 35' container starting in 1956. Their liveries were first the older Billboard type scheme with the older front logo.





    Next were the Common Scheme for these containers with the Modern Sea-Land Logo.


    35'ft Container with Modern Logo


    These Containers and the special chassis they rode on are very rare. They lasted into the early to mid-1980's. Some still survive today but most of these are used for storage but there are 2 on a old Trailer train flatcar on display at the Roanoke Transportation Museum. I know these rare containers would make a very good addition to trainz.

    As a Special note: note that this 40ft container has extra stacking posts for the 35ft container. Even the early ACF Double stack Cars built for the Southern Pacific and the Sea-Land Gunderson Stacks had stacking posts for the 35ft container.


    Here's a link to the Early well cars built for the Southern Pacific http://www.railgoat.railfan.net/spca...flat/index.htm. Scroll down on the page to where it says "Intermodal Flat Cars" and click on Classes "F-70-81" (the first well car ever built), "FC-195-1", and "FC-280-1" and you'll find photos of these early double stack cars.

    I've pretty much been feeling that this thread hasn't been noticed.
