Model Information: In N Scale, modern fifty-three foot refrigerated containers were the most requested pieces of Intermodal equipment.

Produced in the early 2000s and still commonly used today, the model is a replica of a CIMC (China International Marine Containers) reefer container, which is virtually identical to the Hyundai version. so paint schemes are available for both manufacturers. This model features: separately applied nose-mounted Thermo-King refrigeration unit and fuel tank; Highly detailed molded end cage; 12 different road numbers available; Stackable with our 53' Corrugated Dry Container as well as most other brands and types of containers; Compatible with 53' Container Chassis; Fits the bottom well of most currently available 53’ Well Cars; Four painted door rods; Factory assembled; Color matched to Tru-Color Paint off-the-shelf colors whenever possible; Era: 2000s+

Designed to fit the bottom wells of most of the fifty-three foot well cars that are presently on the market, these models are also compatible with similarly sized container chassis. A "Operator" model with fewer factory-applied parts and simplified printing; designed from builder's drawings and photographs, these products are built for modelers who enjoy running high-quality, realistic trains at an affordable price.

Prototype History:
An intermodal container is a large standardized shipping container, designed and built for intermodal freight transport, meaning these containers can be used across different modes of transport – from ship to rail to truck – without unloading and reloading their cargo. Intermodal containers are primarily used to store and transport materials and products efficiently and securely in the global containerized intermodal freight transport system, but smaller numbers are in regional use as well. These containers are known under a number of names, such as simply container, cargo or freight container, ISO container, shipping, sea or ocean container, container van or (Conex) box, sea or c can.

53' Containers are generally used only in North American domestic transportation and hence not usually seen on container ships. They are, however, extremely popular in North America due to the increased capacity and efficiency when compared to their 40 foot, ocean-going cousins. Also, since they are not typically used on ships, they have reduced bracing and structural integrity making them cheaper to produce. As result, in 2013, APL, a major logisitics firm, officially ceased support of ocean going transport of these units for simple lack of demand combined with specialized facilities for loading and storage of these units.

Special refrigerated containers, commonly called reefers, can control temperatures, allowing everything from meat, fruit, vegetables and dairy products, to chemicals and pharmaceuticals to travel across the world. Cryogenics may sound like a science of the future but reefer containers get pretty close today. Special super-freeze reefers can keep goods frozen at temperatures as low as -60 degrees C. But other reefers can preserve goods at warmer temperatures if that is necessary. De-humidification systems are able to ensure optimal humidity inside reefer containers. Some reefers also allow the atmosphere in the container to be controlled so for example, bananas can be shipped between continents without turning brown. Even fresh flowers can remain fresh in reefer containers while they are travelling many miles over several days. It is because of reefer containers, that grocery stores are able to stock and sell all kinds of fresh produce all year round.

Road Name History:
C.R. England, Inc. is an American family-owned trucking company founded in 1920. The company provides temperature-controlled transportation services throughout North America and Mexico. England Logistics, a wholly owned subsidiary of C.R. England, provides full truckload brokerage services, intermodal, and dry and cold chain less-than-truckload services, and supply chain management.

Chester Rodney England was born in 1896 to a farming family who lived in Plain City, Utah. In 1920, Chester bought his first Model T truck to provide farm to market service for farmers in Weber County and the Cache Valley. Then, he began hauling milk for the Weber Dairy. During World War II, England would buy Mexican bananas entering the US at El Paso, Texas he then distributed these throughout Utah. After their military service England's sons helped bringing bananas to Utah and returning to Texas with potatoes. As the operation grew, several trucks were added to the fleet. At the height of this era, the packing of Idaho potatoes became a vital part of the business. The England family was operating two packing sheds and a storage facility to enhance the trucking operation.As the Central American bananas became available, the Mexican fruit could not compete in quality, so the banana haul was replaced with produce and the focus of the operation moved to California and Arizona. C.R. England then offered 72-hour coast-to-coast service, new to US shippers. The first trip to the east coast was taken by a driver by the name of Robert Gould. Within a year C.R. England opened an office in the Philadelphia market. Within a short period of time, C.R. England opened a "real" terminal at Pennsauken, New Jersey. In 1978, C.R. England moved its east coast operations to Burlington, New Jersey. In 1982, with advancement in technology, C.R. England was able handle to the east coast operations from the Utah terminal. It now operates terminals in California, New Jersey, Indiana and Texas.
