those are very rare around nowadays, The B trains I was hauling were loads of Irone Ore in bags. Other drivers came in with containers that had the iron ore in bulk right on the ground, the irone ore was offloaded with a bobcat. In other words I dont think they use those in the container department anyways.

The closest thing I seen to it were B train dumb containers hauled by Kleyson (SP?)

White Pass Systems was quite large at one point but I believe the containers would haul general freight north and possibly ore south.
Non standard size ciontainers like that would be used in "captive" service on the WP&Y.
