S scale well car dilemma

"Flatcar" Fred has orders to get all those containers on the dock loaded on a train "No matter what!" screamed the dispatcher.

Trouble is "Flatcar" was one well car short.

So ever the problem solver "Flatcar" made a command decision and here's the result:
Early double stack suggestionDoublestack 2Doublestack 23.5 ft. high

Other than the fact that the load tops out at 23.5 feet above the rail who's gonna notice?

"Flatcar" hopes there's no tunnels wherever that train's going or he'll be looking for a new job.

Amazingly these Des Plaines hobby containers fit this SHS bulkhead flatcar perfectly. It's almost as if they were meant to go together! Well at least on my layout. 

The railroads did and still do ship containers on flatcar but a double-stack? Not likely.

 Fred better start looking for that new job.

Apparently they do stack them like this in the country of India.
