Re: MTL Reruns - Husky's
- I actually made a phone call to pacer. I told them i was doing some
research(which is true) and inquired if they had in their inventory,
any 48' Gunderson Husky. Eventually I was connected to Customer
service, and after being on hold for over 30 minutes, then to the
equipment management team, then refered to the manager of fleet
control, they said, "all 48' are hyndai or tip, no gundersons. They
have some flat aluminums but are currently getting rid of them."
With all that said, I would still like to see MTL release the same
well car, but with different containers, especially corugated sides,
regardless of size.
