Ok this isn't about rolling stock but the lack there of. I just got a reply from USA saying that they aren't considering making an auto rack any time soon. They say its too long. (or would be really long) For those that like the modern trains I would imagine an auto rack would be one of the more desired cars. I don't want to attempt to kit bash one as it wouldn't be up to quality standards so what is one to do? Where would some one even begin trying to get these manufactured. Its crazy, we can get a 4 ft steam loco but not one of the most common cars on rails today. Ok I'm done.

I looked at the Shawmut cars and they look quite toyish.(auto rack) Better than not having an option though. Im not sure of the length but USA Trains in their reply thought they are 85 foot cars. Oh well at least I have the intermodal cars.
