Re: Container gons from NKP
Tim ( O'Connor). I think we are in agreement, but I don't understand your point. My point was that if the containers in the photo were 9' long, like the Walthers model, and were set 6 of them lengthwise, that would be 54' and would have required a longer car, so that's why I felt they were shorter than the width of a gon and probably closer to 7'.
I think Tim Mulina has settled it. Thanks, Tim. It looks like I came pretty close in my size estimate:
"I'm betting that these containers are all the same, and that they are each about 7 ft long and 4' 9" wide (9 ft , 6 in div by 2) ."
This all goes to show how confusing a photo can be regarding dimensions.
