Re: Automobile Shipping

Basically, the closest local team track or freight house was typically the place where automobiles were delivered to local dealers and then they were driven on their own wheels to the dealership. A “full load” on a 40’ car would be 4 autos and a 50’ car might load as many as 6 autos. Dealers typically got full loads but the could also split loads, typically with the dealer in the next town ;)
Unloading required either a platform at the height of the car doors, or for end door cars, a ramp.
