Morning Sun Books, 2018

This book begins with a discussion of replacing the boxcar with the development of the auto rack car. The coming of Trailer Train, open auto racks, Verti-A-Pac, and various auto loading ramps are discussed and pictured.

Trace the modern auto rack car from inception to today on roads ranging from Atlantic Coast Line to Kansas City Southern through the products of a number of manufacturers. All versions from the late 1950s to today are illustrated in rare color views.
