Who makes N Scale TOFC?

I`m been looking for industries to add to my layout and would like to add a trailer train loading ramp.

But I`m having trouble finding proper trailer train flat cars. I`ve seen the older models with a trailer just sitting on a flat car and it just doesn`t do the job for me at all

What other kind is there?  Every North American TOFC car I've ever seen was a "trailer sitting on a flatcar".  Europe has ones where the entire tractor-trailer is hauled, but I haven't seen those here.

Sorry should have said I'm modeling the 50s so I'm looking for truc train flat cars from that era
I know they had 75' cars back then

CodyO,
Check out nscalekits.com from the UK.  Great PRR F30d kits...they are 50' however.

This is a link straight to the model you are after. They are Pennsy and you can run two CMW pup trailers on them. You can get them in Pennsy but you would need to mix them up a bit with other trailers.

Sylvan has the Pennsy 26' Fruehauf Dura Van trailers - http://www.sylvanscalemodels.com/kits/TN002.htm - for those flats as well as a 48'-54' Chevy COE and 40'-58' White Super Power tractors to haul them.

Are you looking for something like this:

http://www.intermountain-railway.com/n/html/66401.htm

or this?:

http://www.intermountain-railway.com/n/html/66412.htm

Those flatcars are designed with chain tie-downs for vehicles and heavy equipment, but they're not for TOFC.

Erm, I think this is the link you're looking for?

These are neat looking cars too:

And of course you had other types of essentially regular flat cars with bridge plates, rub rails and tie-downs added:

Anyone know if the Clejan cars could still be found in mainline service in the late 60s?  I've never seen any photo evidence of one and don't know of their disposition, but had thought about including some in my circus train.

The NP's Clejan cars were still in service in early 1974.  They were bought to be used with the SP's West Coast Clejan operations, so I assume the SP's were also still in service then.

I had no idea NP had Clejans.  Know if they ran into Chicago via the Q?
