1-7. Difference in Models. The basic container is
built to specification, less side plywood liners and
mechanical bracing system. General cargo containers
with plywood liners are numbered 3430 through 5629
(fig. 1-2). Containers with mechanical load bracing
systems are numbered 5630 through 10129 (fig. 1-3).
Containers numbered 12000 to 13022 have mechanical
load bracing systems, but differ from other containers.
There are no roof cross bows on containers numbered
12000 and higher. Instead, five sections of corrugate
steel are overlapped and welded directly to the upper
side rails. Forklift pockets for lifting empty containers
are located in the bottom side rails. There is no kick
plate on the sides of the container. Doors, Sill, Door
header, Cross Members and Front beam are formed
differently from earlier models, but have the same
strength and serve the same purpose.
