Malcom McLean and Sea Land

When one looks at the vast sea of containers on double stack container trains or stacked way high on containerships, one can't help think that less than 45+ years ago this did not really exist.  Malcom McLean one of the grandfathers of our containerized freight helped start this revolution and changed how cargo was handled.  A PDF from TR News on Malcom McLean and Sea Land containerships explains this exciting history.  I hope you will enjoy the history whether it's from the railroader, trucker or merchant marine point of view.

(By the way, for container handling equipment, be sure to tell your friends that the HO scale Piggy-Packers pre-orders are due by Feb. 22, 2013 - reserve at your favorite dealer or directly.  For the N scalers at heart, we have a limited number of 2nd run Piggy-Packers in stock.)
