The Q had a small number of bi-levels (maybe 10) assigned to Massey Ferguson at Detroit on the C&O. They were unusual as they were "self-unloaders". One end section of the B deck (top deck) could be lowered with some sort of a winch system. This system allowed these cars to be unloaded at locations other than an auto facility. I do not remember who manufactured the racks but I would guess it was Whitehead and Kales at River Rouge.

I think I have a slide, or at least remember, seeing auto racks of Massey Ferguson model 35 tractors going through Galesburg in the mid 60's. The whole point is that it is probably going to cost a modeler twice what the car cost just for the load to go on them.

Amen. And vans, too!
