Remarks & Notes 
Rare bird alert! This is one of only two "Auto Guard" tri-level auto carriers built for Southern Railway in 1973. The 129-foot fully-enclosed car consists of three permanently-connected 40-foot units & remained in service on NS thru October 1993. Those "things" which appear to be protruding from the top are actually on top of the NCTM paint shop behind the car! The other unit was involved in an accident two years into service & never returned to the road.

A much needed album given that there is no "category" to identify these pictures
