Great stuff , I hate to mention the dreaded B word but are you shipping and  removing the Vat for your EU customers on your site .

HI 

We are not vat registered in the UK yet as all it would do is push the retail price up a bit anyway. like i've pointed out they should have been a price increase this time round as my 40ft containers have been the same price for 12 years !!!

Regards Arran

Last year bought 20ft Bell containers  superb  

Yes 👌the detail especially the locking mechanisms on the door ends really pop with the painted parts. I have a rake of 20ft container flats with their Bell containers on them. Just about straddles the end of my era.

I'd take a few Bell tanks as well if they appeared 😉

I would also like to see the plain green Consent Leasing 40 foots that were very often mixed in with Bell liners in the 90's. I guess these would have wider appeal as well as they must have popped up everywhere being a leased container.

More Bells ordered and B & I, having missed the original container liner wagons 😂,  catching up thanks to the excellent spoil wagons and C Rail container great selection, can

assemble a liner train that used to come to Cork

B&I went bust in 92 I believe. How long after that were these fallen flag B&I containers to be seen and was there ever a liner full of them?

 

In the early 70s there were trains full of B + I, yes.

How about the mid nineties, after B&I met their maker? Would there still have been full trains of B&I containers awaiting purchase or repainting etc?

No, not full trains. I’m not sure what happened to their containers, though.

I guess they became the property of Irish Continental Group. Maybe some were repainted into Eucon livery. Eucon containers would be cool if @Arran was so inclined at some stage 😉

I have a couple of the 45 footers from Bachmann but 40 footers would be great. A typically Irish container.

40’ SeaWheel containers would be great future release 

The sea wheel boxes are 40ft Pallet wides so different to Arrans tooling unfortunately..

But would be a good model for Limerick to Waterford baby powder liners
