The Menards auto rack is based on the scale-sized Menards flatcar and has two levels of recent vintage autos.

Home improvement chain Menards has unveiled a new freight car to add to your O gauge fleet. The no. 279-3912 14 3/4-inch Bi-Level auto carrier is an O gauge car that comes with six die-cast vehicles as well as a packet of road name stickers (two in each railroad name)  so that you can personalize the TTX car for your favorite line. The car costs $49.99 plus shipping. Order at and select free shipment to our local Menards store.

The car has ladders on the sides and safety railing up top.

Don't worry about the open ends, the vehicles won't roll out. The autos are secured to the deck.

The car has a packet of stickers of  railroad heralds (two of each road name) that you may peel off the backing and place on the designated sideboard.

The auto carrier is a distinctive design with some slick-looking vehicles on board.

Some of the stickers included with the car. Needless to say, New York Central was affixed to the car by your's truly.
