    Question about autoracks..

    Discussion started by ohjees - Jun 9, 2005

    I have a quick question concerning autoracks. If there are cars being stored inside when you are painting will this produce off spray on the vehicles????? Do you guys know if people paint them when cars are inside???? Thanks for the help guys!! PEACE!

    I would assume that the cars have some kind of film or protective covering on them when they are kept inside the trains. It doesnt seem logical that the cars exterior would be completely exposed to the elements. There's alot of corosive chemicals and harmful dusts in and around train yards. Just a thought..But thanks alot for the feedback!

    ...bottom line..it's not a good idea to paint loaded autoracks...

    ...what happens is this...yes overspray sticks to cars...when they are unloaded at dealership (or yard for transport), the dealer can reject the car and send it back...meaning that then the railroad is responsible for it, and it could be traced back to where you were painting it...this equals bad...
    ...some times, however, the dealer will simply buff off the overspray...new cars have a ton of clear coat on them...but they still report the damage to the carrier...which could trace back to your spot...
    ...again...don't paint 'em loaded...you're making your spot hot...

    quite honestly i would stay out of spots with loaded auto racks period. if there loaded the spot is probably somewhat secured.

    loaded auto racks are only supposed to stop at guarded layups and yards with 24 hour activity. that's not to say that this is always the way things happen, but this is part of the assurance the carrier makes to the manufacturer. Or at least that's the way it is at the ford plant in my city. So in general, if loaded autoracks stop at your spot, it may be hotter than you think. or it may not. just a thought...

    i've painted loaded autoracks.....but it was stopped on a holding line en route............so there's no way that it could be traced back.

    Painting em loaded risks heating the spot. I don't do it unless I'm visiting somebody who takes me to their spot and tells me they do it all the time without any apparent trouble.
    Cars do not have "protective film" over them inside an autorack. Cars are built for, you guessed it, outdoors. And there are no corrosive gases or dusts in a train yard unless a tank car splits open, which is pretty rare and raises bigger issues than the finish on some new cars.
