Three different ones IIRC, Hub Group for sure, don't recall the others.  But I already had the same ones from JTC which is how I know they're identical.  I used the Bay because I couldn't find them anywhere else - must have flown off the shelves.  More needed.

I am still betting that you got Atlas containers and you just forgot exactly where they came from.  JTC has never done the paint schemes shown by evemodel on eBay.  Atlas has done them exactly.

Here are the ones already shipped:

One major spotting difference between Atlas and JTC containers is the lack of molded magnet circles in the bottom molding. 

The ones I got from evemodel HAD those moldings.

Jim,

The Atlas 45-ft and 53-ft containers do have the molded magnet circles, but they do not include the magnets or steel plates.  However, the Atlas containers' molded magnet circles are not at the same spacing as the JTC containers.  One has to remove part of the molded in magnet ring to add magnets and steel plates in the appropriate positions with the Atlas containers.  You might want to check the spacing of the molded magnet circles to see if they match the spacing used on the JTC containers.

Edit:  The Atlas 45-ft and 53-ft containers only have two circles for magnets, not three as found on the JTC containers.

The Atlas 40-ft containers do not have the magnet circles.

Speaking of those... They seem like very modern prototype.  Does anybody know if that style of container dates to earlier than 2006?
