Hank Stephens
Fantastic Model of a 1980s Autorack car at Premium Price

I bought one ATSF and two of the CP version cars with clamshell ends and roof. The detail on the car is second to none, but it is sturdy enough to run regularly on a layout in operations. It also works well with other manufacturers. The price point is high, but not out of range for new tooled models coming out in 2023-2024. I will definitely try to add additional units, though the price point will limit purchase power. It took about two weeks from order to ship. I did email the company as the time period was a little long. However, they delivered exactly what they said they would. Packaging protected the cars well, and in all this was a very satisfactory purchase and transaction.
My ATSF car will be reworked as a prototype freelance car and the change will make a remarkable car from a remarkable company!

If you are on the fence, buy a couple and see for yourself!

Safe-Pak History

In 1973 the first fully enclosed autorack railroad cars were designed by competing manufacturers to address the problem of increasing vandalism to new automobiles in transit. The first production fully enclosed autorack railroad cars were delivered in late 1974 and early 1975. The Whitehead & Kales company design, named Safe-Pak, were delivered to the ATSF, SBD, CSXT Patch, UP/WP, UP, WP, NW, SCL, FEC, and CPAA. The Safe-Pak autorack cars were in service on US and Canadian railroads until the late 1990s.
