New 40' containers available
MCZ Models and Freudenreich Feinwerktechnik announce the availability of
Z scale injection molded, pad printed, 40' corrugated hi-cube dry cargo
containers in two new paint schemes: Maersk (gray, with black printing and
white star on pale blue background) and "K" Line (red, with white printing
and flag logo).
List price is $9.95. They will immediately join the APL, China
Shipping, Hanjin, Lys-Line, Mediterranean Shipping Co., Nedlloyd, and Zim
40' containers and various 53' domestic containers already available at
These containers fit in Freudenreich, Micro-Trains (MTL) and AZL well
cars. They stack on top of AZL containers (AZL pins are too large to
stack on top of these containers, although you could enlarge the holes if
you were determined) and stack with Marklin containers. They do not stack
with MTL containers without modification.
This type of container makes up about 99% of the non-reefer 40'
containers that move in international commerce on ships today and a like
percentage of on-reefer 40' containers in domestic traffic.
