I remember when my dad was transferred from Sungei Petani to Ipoh, he was provided with a BCG for our household effects. Seen the BTA along the Shah Alam North Port in Port Klang. I used the BCF to transfer my laden containers from Ipoh to Port Klang when I was working with Kontena Nasional Ipoh in the 80s. We used to have a lot of problems with these wagons because it was the transitional period were by KTMB was converting from Hook couplers to Knuckle Couplers. If there was no adaptor wagon our exports were surrendered at Ipoh and miss the connecting container vessel at Port Klang. To overcome these problems I was very close with the KL Train Controller, the Pengurus Wilayah of Ipoh and the Ipoh Yard Foreman.
