    Check out this cool postcard for sale:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/1960-Burlington-...QQcmdZViewItem

    Some items, like the red wagon on top, almost make it look like toys rather than real...

    I'm not willing to bid a sawbuck for a postcard, but I'd love to have a print of it[8D]

    I agree, a neat pic,[] but a little pricey for a postcard size print.

        They are 1960 models. There's my 2 door wagon in #2 position. Even the color I'm thinking of (bamboo yellow). With it tied down like it is, it even has the proper hot rod stance [8D]

        (I wonder if it has the obligatory LS2 6 speed )

                Think thats something, see if you can dig up the full size print. We have the same thing hanging in the back of our model train club. Believe me its because of the Burlington equipment and not the Studebakers I can assure you, lol.

                    I also cannot confirm or deny the accuracy of the print as usually vehicles went out on autoracks(I think they were still open about this point) about this time and I'd imagine for immediate transport the trucks were shipped empty on flatcars. If its real its gotta be an early attempt for trailer on flatcar. This is about the time trailer on flatcar starting coming into focus, but most of them were shipped trailer only, with the trucks being shipped separate, but I digress a little.....

                    My prototype picking is over, you may resume your normal scheduled programming, lol

                        The observation about the shipping method is interesting. It appears that there are two individual "racks" chained to the flatbed. I would guess these to be trailers, but I can't see any axles. I don't recall ever seeing this shipping method.

                            I count 10 units on one transport! My modern transports only hold 7. Wonder why that is?

                            Amazing coincidence that Steinkamp's wagon is on the top, and on the bottom row is the sedan in his sig. line[:0]
