Oh yeah! I dig the Sea-Land trailers. Can anyone give me a rundown on ATPs for the different schemes?

Just what I was wanting Trailer Train brown straight sill flats!! 8) and it much more!! This is awesome stuff. :P I'm going to build some racks for the 85' flats that will be removable so the flats can be used for auto and TOFC service.

Are the 85' straight-side flats appropriate for bi-level racks?  That would be an interesting kitbash to do.

Yeah they used 85' flats I have a 12-1962 Trains magazine and it says 85' flats were used, there is a picture of an autorack mounted on a flat like the trainworx car. It also shows the F89A flats too.

Does that mean that the Trailer Train (brown) model from last year (28545-07 to -12) with a fish belly sill is incorrect?

Or am I misinterpreting your statement?

Trailer Train had both bodystyles, originally painted brown and later repainted yellow.  The straight-sill is the later version and I verified with Pat that it was used for bi-level and tri-level auto-rack duty.

I've tried to locate some information regarding the history of the Sea-Land schemes with little luck, so far.

I'm in for this one -

BTTX   Trailer Train   474708   X   Empty   AC      1000      2531      7/28/1965

It's the only F85b I can find in my list used for autos. 

That does it, I'm going to see if I can find the drawings for the F89CH.  Kickstarter campaign pending.  ;)

I've been looking, too, but to no avail so far.  I sure would like to know that information, because the Seaboard System, if not hauling Sea-Land trailers, absolutely hauled Sea-Land double stack containers.  I'd like to get a fix on schemes.
