    A specialised piece of railroad rolling stock designed to move cars and light trucks is referred to as an autorack or an auto carrier. Autoracks are used for passenger vehicle transportation in automobile shuttles and motorcoach services as well as for the transportation of new vehicles from auto manufacturers to automotive distributors.


    The challenge of fitting bigger and larger vehicles onto autoracks is still a challenge for modern railroads. Making a double-length car that is articulated over a single central truck with each half being roughly the same length as a standard autorack is a common approach.


    They are brand-named AutoMax vehicles, and you can see them in use on various western US railroads. These Gunderson vehicles are 145 feet 4 inches long and 20 feet 2 inches tall, with movable internal decks that can accommodate up to 22 light trucks and minivans.Single-unit autoracks that enable the number of loading levels, or decks, to be readily changed between bilevel and trilevel on which is in demand at the time are being created for better flexibility and to optimise car usage.


    The main long-distance carrier of finished autos is now the railroads. They can offer additional protection from in-transit damage at a reduced cost by using enclosed tri-level autoracks. The railroad firms were able to lower the number of freight damage claims when they switched from open autoracks to enclosed autoracks.


    The enclosed rail cars guarded against falling or hurled rocks, gunfire, and other types of vandalism, protecting the automobiles from harm. They also prevented hobos from residing in cars and stopped the theft of cars and car parts.
