Resource for old container photos?

Post by MacG » Sat May 14, 2022 2:10 pm

Does anyone know of a website for old container photos from the 60s and 70s? I mean 20ft and 40 ft containers, some with smooth walls.

The http://rrpicturearchives.net and the http://canadianfreightcargallery.ca are not very helpful.

There is not much on railpictures.ca either. Only these two pictures I found there.

A bit confusing, but still a very interesting website: matts-place.com.

I'll stay tuned.
