The book, "The Box"

Post by Cowford »

Just finished this, which is a history of marine containerization. Well written and an interesting read for those with a deeper interest into the business history of railroads and transportion in general. The focus is more on the marine side (Sea-Land, US Lines, etc) but there is discussion on NYC, PRR, and the development of Trailer Train (TTX)... I had no idea the company started as a division of PRR.
