Figured you could help identify this
Author: misty1

I never saw one of these before and was hoping someone could give me some info as to time period and locations that they may have been used or maybe some pics in use. The number on this one is CNRU230571. Any information on it will be appreciated. The unit is sitting in Wilton Iowa.  Thanks to my neighbors to the North.

Yep, these “Flying 5I” cans largely displaced the 48 foot “CN Intermodal Laser” container fleet. I always thought they looked good, I miss seeing them on the stack trains.

My first photo of a different number series (288466, with Thermo King equipment, I think) in this look was in September 2001, so I guess it was new at the time. I shot a few over the next couple of years, then obviously didn't feel the need to do it again to add to the Kodachromes I had of these.
