Autocarrier kit


This kit models one of the earliest autocarriers for railcars.
These autocarriers were used to transport
automobiles from the large GM plant at Van Nuys across the SP system

Trailers were loaded circus style, using specially adapted axles
that ran along the high central spines of the Clejan Spine Cars.
The kits include axles and fifth wheel designed to
run on the N Scale Kits Clejan Spine car

A number of N Scale manufacturers make suitable cars
to run as loads for this unusual trailer.

Details of the Clejan Spine Car are here

Unpainted example to show how the kit is glued or soldered
The kit comes with axles, wheels and fifth wheel

Decals are available from Microscale® and details are included in the Instruction Sheet

Full prototype information on these cars is not available on the web
but some pictures of the autocarriers can be found in
Tony Thompson's book 'SP Color Guide to Freight
and Passenger Equipment Vol 1'
