Athearn N Scale: 40' Smooth Side Container - APL - 3 Pack
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. 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 highly detailed printing and decoration
- Three different road numbers per pack
- Some SKUs feature multiple logos and/or decoration variations
- Smooth side containers were common from the late 1970s to the early 1990s.
