Mine look  a little different than Martys more than likely due to the fact im going to completely re-decal mine for other roads as opposed to keeping what was on the 40' the ends were glued on.


The Red container is already painted and I'll have to get Stan the pictures and logos for Hub Group Inc. Heres a real pic of one:  http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=480984


The other one that used to be  Maersk 40' and a Evergreen 20' will become a STAX once I paint it .  Pic of a real one: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=52790


I have that intermodal itch again.  LOOK OUT AT THE ECLSTS Charlie Ro!!! hahaha.  I may have to mention something to him when im down there.  This could be a new idea for em.

Also WallyMart has small tubes of bodo body putty for cars, it works great for filling cracks. I also left the ends on because the supports need to be there to stack.


 good job Kev, great idea to.


 To bad we can't post this on Aristo site and say we are ready for those longer allpurpose cars to be made.

However we could ask if they are making 53' compatiable well cars, cause then we can double stack our 53's.  Somehow I doubt it as I think its a U.S. Only standard.  I dont think Europe uses the 53' container at all, we just seem to use it since thats what were used to in the trucking world.

Some new shots of my 2 53's painted.  Lettering is on the way from Mr. Cedarleaf.  Next post from me will be with them lettered.  With how much lettering these need they ought to look GREAT!!
