There was a Starcraft plant in or near Listowel, Ontario that used to ship pop-up tent trailers in trilevel autoracks. (There's no railroad tracks within 50 miles of Listowel anymore ... except in the basement of a friend who lives over there and models the local area circa the late 1970s)

That was s'posed ta be GTW's business car, but they found they couldn't get aboard, even from high station platforms, and there was no place to put a ladder inside! Besides, navigating a ladder after some of that Hiram Walker stuff wuz dangerous.  ;D ;D ;D

The CGW Safety News had this from 1962 which is on my list of things to model.





But I thought this one was interesting.
