That is too cool. Badly needed indeed,  and we hope more road names to follow  :drool:
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Sure could use some Pick Up trucks to put in there.
I’m not here to argue

Very nice.  Why not just offer the screens as an after-market add on?

Video's nice, but you need a better sound studio for the voice over.  Sounds like she's in a shower stall...

Get some ceiling tiles and nail them up on the walls in a small room or closet and put the mic in there... and maybe get a better mic.

From this thread:

https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=27742.100

Okay, I have the first set of vehicles that I can make available:
and a 1968 Ford pickup:



Hmm... did the flat cars
have vandal screens in
1968...?

Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

No, I don't think banana tossing was a big problem in '68  :P

Dee:  Probably not, although there may be an exception somewhere.  In Noel Holley's bok on the MILW electrics, I found 16 autoracks in a quick scan of 1973 pictures.  Three had screens, 13 didn't, so based on that, they'd probably be rare before 1972 or so.  Even in the late 70s there were unscreened racks in service.  I will probably buy a few for my 1974 railroad, although I have no place to load or unload them.

Very nice.  Why not just offer the screens as an after-market

I was thinking the same thing about offering the screens separately so they could be added to existing models.  Maybe offer screens for a tri-level auto rack also.
