There are four types of automobile rack cars: AutoMax, Bi-Level, Tri-Level and Uni-Level. The majority of auto rack cars are now fully enclosed. This substantially reduces damage from theft, vandalism and the elements.
One deck allows for single loading of finished vehicles such as truck tractors, farm implements, recreational vehicles, buses and double-decker buses.
