Now that's a shipping company I've never heard of.. but still I ORDERED.....

That shipping company's containers are a common sight on CSX trains traveling through Syracuse, New York.

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!

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.
