The "Low" containers are are a little lower than the current boxes allowing the modeler to carry  5 boxes instead of 4 in the nylon carrying case.  They will hold the average height freight cars and locomotives.  Excess height cars (autoracks, Amtrak Superliner cars, etc) will not fit.  These low side containers utilize space more efficiently for N Scale equipment and HO vehicles.  The length and number of individual storage slots remains the same.  These cases are excellent for carrying long unit trains (grain, cement, intermodal  cars and up to 48 coal cars) and the engines to pull them.
