Modeling idea: Vintage railcar for the early 50s! "Evans Autoloader"
Here is a car very seldom seen on 1950's era model railroads. I intend to scratchbuild an O scale model for use when I am operating early F3 diesels and GPs. These cars were about 50 foot in length since they allowed 3 autos per level (having a length of about 198 inches each). See the 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air photo.
These predated the 89 foot double and triple "autoracks" in use today.
What car model/make/year automobile (brands) are shown being transported? One of them looks like a 1953 Bel Air!
