Bi-Level AutorackAbout the 89′ Bi-level Autorack:

An autorack, also known as an auto carrier, is a specialized piece of railroad rolling stock used to transport automobiles and light trucks, generally from factories to automotive distributors. Amtrak® also uses them in its Auto Train, which carries passengers and their vehicles.

In late 1957, Canadian National Railroad (CN) introduced a group of auto carriers which represented a new innovation. The CN bi-level auto-rack cars had end-doors. They were huge by the standards of the time; the cars were 75 ft (22.86 m) long and could carry 8 vehicles. These cars were a big success and helped lead to the development of today’s enclosed auto racks.
