The PRR had some G27 gons cut down to flats that the frames could be stacked on
top of each other and loaded and unloaded with a fork truck.  Class FG27  There
is also part of a picture of a NYC flat with frame on top of each other on page
45 PRR Color Guide Vol. 1 only about 1/3 of the car is showing

Tim,
I thought that all the flat car auto frames were stacked
"flat", while
the gons were more or less "upright". Been wrong before.

Chuck, the Santa Fe had some auto frame flats with a rack installed
so the frames could stand diagonally on end. I'll send you a scan
off list.
