I'd like Lionel to make some semi-scale 3 and 5 unit well car sets with containers and also spine cars. Also, they need to make an updated Intermodal Crane with Command-Control. I would buy a few sets of each so I could have an intermodal operation on a future layout. I would still buy the cars for my current layout.
I agree. You can get the modern Intermodal cranes in HO but not in O. Interestingly enough, I had starting 3D modeling the CSX Intermodal Crane in Baltimore from photographs two years ago...that's when I got back into model trains. I have the wheel sets modeled but it was clear that it was going to be a pain to 3D print those components, so I put it aside. It might have been more exciting if I starting with the hoist first instead of the from the ground-up approach.
I just tried to purchase an Atlas Gunderson maxi-IV well car set off of the evil that is the bay but it someone else bought it while I was checking out. Talk about getting some strange error messages.
