Complete prototype descriptions and modeling tips will help any modeler explore this dynamic trend. Railroads, both prototype and model, have witnessed a dramatic revolution in the way they carry freight. The expansive 53-foot trailers and uniform containerized loads that now ride the rails are the result of changes that began in the late 1800s, when farmers' wagons were first chained onto flatcars. Jeff Wilson's must-have book uses detailed photographs and illustrations to explain this dynamic aspect of railroading. Includes an up-to-date history of intermodal equipment and operations. Features insightful photos and descriptions of phototype intermodal railcars, loads, and yard equipment. Presents well-illustrated tips, techniques, and instructions for modeling intermodal transportation on a layout of any scale. Provides a list of available HO and N scale intermodal equipment.
