Farish 373-453 Freightliners
« on: January 21, 2018, 02:48:40 pm »
I have several of these with 3 x 20ft containers on them but would like to create some gaps. Before I have a go at levering some containers off in my usual cack-handed way and thus breaking something, is there an idiot-proof way of achieving this and are they easy to attach again please? :help:

They’re not attached in any way, so if yours are stuck someone has stuck them down. Obviously the chances of removing them depend on what they used.

The boxes have little pips (lugs, spigots, if you like) on each bottom corner that are an interference fit in to holes on the wagon floor. I've had some factory new that felt like they were glued on, but of course weren't. So just try gentle but insistent force first.

Try not to waggle too much though. I did, and some of the pins have snapped off in the holes.

Just got to ease them of carefully.

I'd only use a crowbar as last resort.

Turn the wagon upside down and you will then see the locating holes ( in each corner, I think on the 20ft containers) and the pins on the container bases. Use a pointy thing to gently push the pins / containers out of the holes.  Sometimes they are very tight so make sure you push vertically downwards whilst holding the deck as rigidly as possible.
