Prototype History:
The 40 foot container is the king of the container business. It is the most common standard container size used for international and domestic shipping. Most intermodal operations that handle overseas shipping are optimized for this container size. These containers are typically reinforced for loading, unloading and transportation by ship.

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:
CMA CGM S.A. is a French container transportation and shipping company. It is the world’s 3rd largest container shipping company, using 257 shipping routes between 420 ports in 160 different countries. Its headquarters are in Marseille, France and its North American headquarters are in Norfolk, Virginia.
CMA CGM, was founded in 1996 as a merger of the Compagnie Générale Maritime (CGM) et the Compagnie Maritime d'Affrètement (CMA).
Compagnie Générale Transatlantique, the predecessor company to Compagnie Générale Maritime (CGM), at one time carried passengers on liners such as the 'Normandy' or the 'France'. CGM maintained only its cargo business when the French government decides to privatise it in 1977.
CMA was created in 1978 by Jacques Saadé as an intra-Mediterranean liner service operator, based in Marseille. After the merger, Jacques Saadé became the first chairman of CMA CGM. He was succeeded in this position by his son Rodolphe in 2017.

Brand/Importer Information:
Fox Valley Models is a small supplier of model railroad and related products. FVM started by finding solutions to different challenges that model railroaders were faced with. Our first products resulted from a need to equip custom built passenger cars with tinted windows made of an ideal material; thin, flexible, easy to cut, simple to install, available in multiple colors and be affordable. We met those needs and even included a frosted version for the car's lavatory windows.

Other challenges inspired additional products including wooden grade crossings, trestles and different lineside structures. As our product line expands, input and requests from friends and customers help shape the product selection further.

Future products, under development, include more parts, structures, details and rolling stock. We strive to offer a good quality product at an affordable price.
