210701 BNSF Maxi-Stack III Set 1 #210701, Set 2 #210711 $94.95 each

BNSF's Maxi Stack IIIs were among the last built of this car type. The surge in intermodal traffic in the late 90's put them on the spot. Although 53' containers were becoming more common, tens of thousands of 48' domestic boxes remained in daily service and the maximum length of an international container was (and remains today) 45'. BNSF determined that the 5x48' well combination (with the ability to carry 53' boxes in the upper position) was the most flexible combination while simultaniously keeping costs and train length in check.

Flexi-Van 40' Container Chassis 2-Pack (part 2 of 1st run) #1010 $16.45

New Jersey based Flexi-Van is the preeminent container chassis lessor in North America. With the acquisition of the marine chassis fleet of TIP (a GE Capital company) in 2002 and the chassis fleet of XTRA in 2004, the Flexi-Van fleet swelled to a whopping 157,000 chassis! These lease fleets permit shipping lines to concentrate on the shipping and leave the chassis management to someone else.

TRAC Lease 40' Container Chassis 2-Pack (part 2 of 1st run) #1020 $16.45

TRAC Lease is the chassis management subsidiary of container leasing giant Interpool. They have a fleet of over 200,000 chassis of various lengths. The TRAC Lease fleet is operated separetly from the Interpool container fleet so it is common for other lessor boxes to ride these chassis. These lease fleets permit shipping lines to concentrate on the shipping and leave the chassis management to someone else.
