    Default JTC 48-foot Corrugated Containers

    There has not been an official announcement yet, but page 9 of the March/April 2019 issue of N-Scale magazine has an ad for new JTC 48-foot corrugated containers.

    I am going to need a lot in the two APL paint schemes shown in the artwork.

    I received the following email yesterday. I thought Stan or Steve might post the info here, but they haven't yet, so here it is!

    Good Morning,

    Our 48' containers will be released next week to our direct dealers and national distributors. What you will notice is that these are completely newly tooled models that have never been available to the N-scale market. There are some very distinct differences in these model listed below besides the fact that this is the "First time in N-scale".

    Features:
    These are prototypically correct models.
    Some of the "patches" were increased in size to cover the original logo or double stack set of numbers per prototype.
    The IBC connection points are different colors where appropriate across the different models.
    IBC location is at 40'
    The door latch handles and bars are NOT galvanized because they were painted the same color as the container per prototype.
    They have the magnetic connection system along with IBC pins

    APL has been a distinct shipping service in which they used many different containers and paint schemes throughout the years. We are in the process of developing our APL family of containers. APL will not be the only line that will have a "series" family of containers. This type of product line up will be distributed over a period of time. Other lines that are in the process are K-line, OOCL, CMA CGM, etc. A flyer will be posted to our website and Facebook page later.
