Container Interlude





Having a break from loco projects and typing of articles by messing about with some ‘OO’ gauge C-Rail Intermodal kits that I’ve been meaning to build and review for Model Rail for some time (sorry, Mr Aird!). Consisting of a High Cube ‘box’ and a set of etched details for the 20ft tanktainer kit, these are pretty fine and dandy – a pleasure to build and install.

Indeed, the tanktainer bits are a clear improvement over the moulded parts that come as standard (and fitted to the Stolt unit pictured above, as reviewed in MR118). Check out the C-Rail website for more details (www.c-rail-intermodal.co.uk) along with a review in the mag soon.

PS. Note the brass screw hooks inserted into the bottom of the box container to help with the painting process. They can simply be hung out to dry!
