Since the time of the Model T, railroads have played a role in getting automobiles to market. For the first half of the twentieth century, that generally involved automobile boxcars, usually with wide doors and often with end doors as well. But with a capacity of only about four autos, the boxcar was just slightly more economical than an over-the-road auto carrier, which could hold as many or more autos and deliver them right to a dealer's door.
