Railroads have undergone a transformation when it comes to how they carry freight. In the early 1800s, farmers chained their wagons to flatcars while today it's more common to see long trailers and container loads to haul goods. Railroaders may choose to add to their model railroading layout by adding intermodal equipment like well cars, chassis, trailers, containers, and more from the modern railroad era. Model Train Stuff offers intermodal products from brands like Jacksonville Terminal Company, Atlas, Walthers, and Athearn.
