    With work taking me on the WCML often in recent months, I have noticed the Tescoliner (DRS) is many made of high cube 45ft containers rather than the Stobart/Less CO2 curtain side 45fts.

    Perhaps a new 45ft container livery could be the CAI/Eddie Stobart Freight: https://www.flickr.com/photos/martyn...t/46275546315/ & https://www.flickr.com/photos/126612...4/47405270621/ Mainly using the IDA-A wagons.

    Talking of IDAs, they are also used on the new Tilbury to Daventry Stobartliner with 40ft containers! Something different to model!

    Of course, still patiently waiting for the 45ft high cube 2XL/Unit45/Less CO2 as seen in the photo too. Certainly, plenty of 45ft container liveries to be getting on with

    The P&O Ferrymaster 45ft containers were a nice addition to the range. I wonder, what is next? As all seems quiet on the 45ft container front.

    With the release of the Freightliner 90 soon, I am in the market for Russell, as well as 2XL 'the best way to excel' and 2XL original (orange or red branding).

    I note, Stobart has started to 'hire' CAI 45ft containers which might a nice addition to DRS Tescoliners (of course, also in the market for the 2XL Less CO2 Rail 45s as well):

    Unit 45 liveries would also be welcomed still.

    I am eager to know shall the latest Tesco/Stobart branding, as well as Russell’s shall appear on the 45ft high cubes?

    Hi Joel Dapol none of the roof on their site, or on a 15 minute look through flickr/google. I see you have seen the link above. They are a nice, simple livery - P&O is always a popular one.

    Another interesting 45 ft is the Tees Dock to Mossend Malcolm service which features (previously made ECS containers) and the yellow Containerships. They have a new livery too. https://www.unit45.com/311/records/7...ril%202016.pdf

    Interesting logistics company I think, but we have had many Finnish visitors passing through, so perhaps I am biased: http://www.containershipsgroup.com/e...o-the-future-2

    Thanks for the heads up. I have written asking for permission and artwork.

    I do like those, just need some photos of the end doors and roof if possible.

    Joel Dapol Excellent! I shall make sure to check in with the Digest regularly not to miss the announcement of Russells, 2xl and more Stobarts.

    The new style P&O Ferrymasters 45ft High Cube is making regular appearances on Malcolm flows. I would recommend Mira Klinkenberg (found here: http://www.poferrymasters.com/news/images-and-logos) would be the best contact for artwork/permission.

    Am looking forward to extending the Malcolm logistics set in N gauge. (2D-007-001) Are the containers on the list any time soon? It was good to see the OO gauge ones above appearing, hope the N gauge ones are on the horizon soon.

    Look great, not fitting my plans though I'm waiting for the more modern Stobart variants

    N gauge versions next month I'm afraid and we are still working on the next OO version for September release.

    Most of them are not the 45ft High Cube pallet wide type Dapol make. The ECS and GTS were previously released by Dapol and can be found at some retailers/eBay new. Product codes B896A & B896B

    I would like some refrigerated 45ft 'reefer' containers yet as highlighted before, there is not a common design and thus any type chosen would be limited to one livery. See here: https://digest.dapol.co.uk/forum/mai...=2467#post2467

    What is next months? I am rather keen to model the current domestic intermodal out out Daventry for the supermarkets, as highlighted in previous posts.
