  1. Did you know, the first journey most cars make after the production line is by train? It's true. About 65% do. And many people completely disregard the common autorack. Yes, it's not a glamorous car, but it's vital to our automotive society. The Deutsche Bahn DDm 915 class Doppelstock-Autotransportwagen are used for transporting cars from automobile factories to the dealers for sale. They were additionally used to carry cars on long-distance overnight trains. First built in 1969, these dual level cars carry from 8 to 10 vehicles. The upper level is fixed in height. I've taken considerable liberties in the creation of these due to constraints from building in LEGO to accommodate R40 curves and keeping it 6-wide. The center support is missing, along with the railings. Still, I believe they capture the essence of the wagen for use on my rails, especially behind my DB 185 class locomotive. Loading an empty DDm 915 from a ramp. Note the ends of the car fold down to create a continuous driving surface to load multiple autotransportwagens from one ramp. These would normally be on both levels, but were only implemented on the top level due to the bogies. Here is a picture I took of a DDm 915 at the DB Museum Koblenz in 2018. Here is a stand alone picture of the loading ramp. The upper ramp section is hinged to allow loading of both levels.

  3. I see lots of these around my parts. My new Mustang was delivered months ago by rail, probably in one these. It's 6 studs wide, about 50 studs long and 14 studs high measured from the rail. I'd like to build three but dang they are heavy and expensive. So I might wait a bit. I have a couple of other designs in the works too. Below are a couple of pics and a link to the .lxf on Bricksafe. Hope you like! Comments always welcome.
