Kansas City Southern 125-Year Anniversary Auto Rack

NS-Train-458-9-14-2015 (34)

If you’re anything like me, then you’re probably thinking that Kansas City Southern (KCS) coulda’/shoulda’ made the logos on their 125-year anniversary auto racks just a wee bit bigger, especially considering the enormous size of the cars.

What’s interesting about this car is that it’s a hybrid of two railroads, both Kansas City Southern and Providence & Worcester (P&W). The top (rack) is the property of the KCS while the flatcar it rides on belongs to the P&W hence the WRWK (Warwick Railroad) of Providence, R.I. reporting mark.

It looks like P&W and KCS are combining auto carrier fleets but one can never tell for sure. Whatever the case, it’s hard to beat those NAFTA racks, right!?
