Evans "Auto Railer" in 1935

Postby Aa3rt » Sat Sep 17, 2011 12:31 pm

I stumbled across this video today. Basically a 6 minute Chevrolet advertisement, there's about a minute and a half of an Evans Auto Railer in action in Jackson, Michigan. I know about Auto Railers-both New York State's Arcade & Attica as well as the Coudersport and Port Allegheny in neighboring Pennsylvania used these vehicles, but was unaware that they were a Chevrolet product.

Here's the link:

The Auto Railer portion can be seen from 3:08 to 4:30. Don't miss the Florida East Coast 4-8-2 at 0:56.
