we know they are just containers but they are the an everyday site on the railway and are the private owner wagon of today.

An excellent choice - I particularly like the P&O example. Nice touch having the two different refrigeration gubbins; Daikin and Thermo King - probably could have gotten away with some generic representation and no one would have been any the wiser! I’ll certainly be in for a few of these :yes:

Got a bit of of a question on real life operations of these reefer containers.... if loaded on a 60ft wagon, ie, x1 40ft container and x1 20ft container, I presume the refrigerator end would have to face outwards at the wagon end, rather than be adjacent to the 20ft container, yes?.... I’m thinking that the chiller unit would need a free flow of air and being face-to-face with an adjacent container probably doesn’t provide sufficient airflow.


I have spent ages trying to find some photos illustrating this but Google is failing me....!
