Ordered a set of 4 well cars and extra containers, and the container lift tractor (and the free lighted cars).   Menards does a great job for us O-scalers!  -Ken

This is a great idea at a nice price.  How well do the fit into the Atlas deep well cars?  There are several other containers out there already, some fit better than others.

Menards. It doesn't appear there are slots to accommodate the Lionel intermodal Mi-Jack crane. Am I correct?  They look great and I'd lake to add them but I need those slots.   Thanks

The Lionel Mi Jack was set up to use 1/64 size containers not scale containers. 

Maybe it could be redone to do the scale containers but I would not count on it.

I agree with Bob.

Good Lord... more real estate needed....Off to Menards again.....

LOL good thing your a wood worker and know how to build that stuff! but don't forget the green grass! LOL

Dad, you don't have to fool us. Menards has placed a trailer in your driveway a few short steps from your house....Those Santa Fe containers are a real eye catcher...........Paul

I've been hoping Menards would expand the intermodal/container line. Keep them coming! Mark, any chance there will be a  well car only offered in the future? It would be nice to have few to use with the 20' containers and the new 40' ones.

Hi Rob,

That's an interesting idea. Now that we sell the containers by themselves, an empty well car might be something to look into. Thanks for the input!

Mark the Menards Train Guy

CabinetBob, Thats the idea. And maybe some empty well cars to 

make a whole scene. I am trying to see if a can motorize your 

diecast container forlift.

Love the Santa Fe ones you have now and those Chessie ones look great too.

At first I didn't understand why my favorite home improvement store was making it's own line of O gauge train stuff.

Then it hit me.  Menards sells what you need to add on to a house or build an out building.

This all a ploy to get us to add on to our houses or build out buildings.

I'm on to you guys

"Hi Rob,

        I am seconding the idea for Menards to sell empty well cars, preferably sooner rather than later.  

Here's another addition to our intermodal selection!

Awesome Mark!! My favorite road name too! I was going to order the Schneider ones on Friday. I guess I'll be adding to it! We REALLY need those empty well cars now.

I'm seconding (third-ing?) the idea of offering empty well cars, now that there is a growing selection of containers to put in them (Atlas O does this). One could conceivably acquire a string of well cars over time and economically equip them with a random-looking assortment of modern-looking containers, without having to figure out what to do with all those Yang Ming containers one would ordinarily have acquired in the process.

Viva Variety!

That's exactly why I've held off ordering any more cars. I planted the empty well car seed with Mark and he was quite receptive to the idea. Hopefully!

Rob

Not my era at all.    But I sure do wish Menards would make more Southern equipment!   I have a small fleet of their Southern boxcars.   No tank cars, no hoppers of any type, no cabooses, no gondolas, no flatcars.   Only one style boxcar.

That's what I get for living in Iowa. We dont get to see great containers  like this. They will look great on the layout!

Bob - MSC, Mediterranean Shipping Company, is actually one of the larger international shipping container companies. I believe they are  second only to Maersk in total volume. Here's a photo I took last month with one of their containers in action. Well, I just picked up my CSX and CN containers on Saturday. It looks like another order is on the horizon!

Rob

P.S, Mark, how are those empty well cars coming along?

Hello, Mark...

I tried to order the Menard's Santa Fe Intermodal containers yesterday,  but I was unable to complete the transaction due to living in California (see attachment for explanation).

Unfortunately, the closest brick and mortar Menard's store is 1200 miles from where I live, so menards.com is my only option for making purchases.

Other online retailers provide the Prop 65 warning, but I've never encountered a transaction cancellation before. Is this an anomaly or will I not be able to purchase any train related products from Menard's?

Thank you, Bill

Mark, I have some War Bonnet boxes and plan to buy some more to 

add to my Schneider ones. Kindly consider some empty to well cars

so my containers can be productive. UnclePeteRR

Hi Bill,

As I'm sure you are aware, Proposition 65 requires special labeling on items sold to/in the state of California. Unfortunately, items that we've produced before the regulations were not labeled in accordance. Thus, we are unable to sell these to folks in California.

We've made adjustments since and we have an ever-expanding selection of items available for sale to CA but the Intermodal Containers are one of the items missing the Prop 65 warning labels.

Sorry for any frustrations this has caused.

-Mark the Menards Train Guy
