Dirt (trash) container trains + Packers = Cool Action!

As you know Atlas Model Railroad Co. is releasing their new 20-ft high cube MSW trash containers on flat cars in N-scale.  Be sure to pair them up with Wheels of Time's PC-90 Piggy-Packers for unloading & loading these container cars - unless of course you use your "invisible" big hand.  Here are some prototype action shots from the SF Bay Railroad (ex. State Belt Line) CHE-70 Port Packers loading & unloading dirt (trash) containers near the former Hunters Point Naval Ship Yard.  Noticed in one photo the Port Packer has a special attachment to unloading a dirt container into a gondola car.  By the way, the Raygo Wagner CHE-70 Port Packers are very similar to the PC-90s.  Much appreciation to the friendly staff on SF Bay RR for allowing me to take photos and also climb aboard these machines.  Enjoy.Dirt (trash) container carSFBR CHE-70 & containerCHE-70 in action
