Many old guys will dis agree with me on this but i think the shipping container was the best thing that happend to railroads. I dont think the railroads would have grown or would have been as profitable as they have been, had it not been for the container. In fact, looking at an even bigger picture, the container has probably been the best thing that has happened to the world, giving shipping an extreamly efficent and profitable service. Interesting article.
