This all-new book, Piggyback & Container Traffic, is a comprehensive prototype guide to railroad intermodal equipment and operations, tracing the development of piggyback (trailer-on-flatcar) and container traffic from the steam era to today.

Modelers will learn:

  • What equipment and operations are appropriate for the era they're modeling.
  • How trailers and containers have been loaded onto railcars, evolving from end-ramp loading to today's overhead cranes.
  • How piggyback yards and terminals work, and much more!
