Subject: Request for Assistance

Hello from Colorado, My name is Tom Johnson, a mechanical engineer working for the railroad industry and currently performing historical research on the Vert-a-Pac auto rack freight car design.

Your museum website FAQ section references the CPRR shops being the site of Vert-a-Pac prototype fabrication and development beginning in the mid 1960's time period.

Can you please check your ... archives to determine if any records and drawings related to Vert-a-Pac may still be available?

Thank you for your assistance from TTCI
