Seatrain Lines was a shipping company most responsible for the introduction of the standard international intermodal container.
In 1929 Seatrain Lines began the practice of hauling rail cars by ship from the port of New York to Havana, Cuba. Their two 4 deck ships, Seatrain New York and Seatrain Havana were each capable of carrying 100 fully loaded railcars.
When political problems between the two countries rose in the 60's it brought about an end to this service.
This Container is sitting at a farm off route 49 on Ekonk Hill north of Voluntown Connecticut.
