Prototype History:
Given the prevalence of 40 foot containers in the global shipping/maritime industry, the 20 foot container was a logical choice for smaller cargoes. Given that exactly two 20 foot containers can stack on or be stacked on a 40 foot container, these little brothers are a no-brainer for smaller loads. Cargo ships specially designed for 40 foot containers can usually handle these smaller units without specialized loading equipment or facilities.

Dry containers are meant for non-refrigerated goods and hence are the most common type.

Corrugation in the construction of these containers yields much greater strength (just like with corrugated cardboard for boxes) but is more expensive to fabricate. Due to the extra strength granted by the corrugation, this is a popular type for overseas use.
Road Name History:
CAST was a Belgium based logistics company which operated between Montreal and Antwerp. In 1982 it was on the verge of bankruptcy because of a downturn in the world economy, depressed bulk shipping rates and the cost of acquiring three new Korean-built vessels valued at $180 million. It was rescued from bankruptcy by a $200-million package backed by the Bank of Montreal and the Royal Bank.
Brand/Importer Information:
DeLuxe Innovations is a "wholesale manufacturer" of model trains. We manufacture scale replica train models and sell them to hobby shops and distributors worldwide. 2013 marked the 20 year anniversary of DeLuxe Innovations brand trains. There are over 25 body styles in our product line and all of the cars in our single and multi-car packs have different road numbers. DeLuxe Innovations, Inc. is owned by Dave Ferrari, founder of Squeak N Products. We are located in Midland Park, New Jersey. When Dave purchased the business it was located in Burbank, California which would have been a bit of a long commute so the move to the East Coast was planned. Our first East Coast location was in Whippany, NJ along the Whippany River.

The business was started in 1993 by George Johnsen and Roberta Liebreich in Burbank, California. They had a philosophy that just wouldn't allow using a coal car as a "stand in" for a woodchip car, or printing any and all boxcar paint schemes on a PS-1. Starting with the release of the first ever etched metal parts for a ready to run car (1994's Twinstack's metal walkways) through the full dimension underframe and etched metal roofwalk (1996's 1944 AAR Boxcar) to the challenging RoadRailer system (2000), our products have been accurate to target the modeler or enthusiast.
