Loading and Unloading Goods in the Pre Containerized Era


Recommended Posts

A great video. I really liked the yellow of those old Nippon Express trucks and equipment. The older trucks and equipment is something rarely modelled by the likes of Tomytec or Kato, despite it being a large part of the freight movement during this era. Also nice to see the initial black Wamu 80000 prototypes which were obviously brand new when this was filmed. 


I have a yellow Nittsu truck in HO from Tomytec but i don’t recall seeing much in the way of loads.  Would be great to have some old boxes, a bit like Tamiya produce folded paper ration boxes for their 1/35 military models. 


Just goes to show how labour intensive it was before container freight.
