Help with container identification

Unread post by DaveO »

Anyone know whose containers have 2 rectangles on the side that are black or blue?
They're 53 foot domestics. Fairly new or at least to me.
I see them on the various rail live-streams but can't stop the motion such that I can read the lettering and whatever is in the 2 rectangles.

Here's a photo of a domestic 53-footer. Can you describe the area you're talking about?

I should add the sides are white. Sorry for that important omission.

There are 2 vertical rectangles, the outer edge being where the container extensions begin.
As for spacing I'm guessing it like this:
6.5 foot extension, 8 foot vertical rectangle, 24 foot white space, 8 foot vertical rectangle, 6.5 foot extension.

I'll see if I can locate one to get a screen grab. I watch on my TV. The scheme is quite distinctive albeit unreadable by me. Getting old sucks :)

So after rewinding the La Plata cams with no luck, the lighting and train speed at Flagstaff allowed me to see what I've been missing.

I don't remember seeing the lettering between the rectangles. Getting old sucks :)
