Notes:

This 89' bi-level open autorack is brown with white lettering and runs on Barber Roller Bearing trucks. Built in the mid-1960s, this autorack had its Paragon-made rack removed and was converted back into a flatcar by the late 1970s. As a major manufacturer of bi and tri-level racks, Paragon would often receive the flatcar from the manufacturer and install the pre-manufactured rack at their plant.

Notes:

This 89' bi-level open autorack is yellow with black lettering and runs on Barber Roller Bearing trucks. As one of the very first railroads to own multi-level auto flatcars, Frisco painted nearly all of their autoracks "Frisco" yellow with the black "coonskin" logo which served in this paint well into the 1980s. This bi-level rack was made with the option of being converted to a tri-level.
