IN EUROPE YOU CAN TAKE IT WITH YOU

CARRYING PRIVATE AUTOMOBILES BY RAIL HAS BECOME BIG BUSINESS FOR EUROPES RAILROADS. MOTORISTS DRIVE THEIR CARS ONTO A CAR CARRIER, RETIRE TO THE PASSENGER CARS AND ARRIVE, FRESH AND UNHARRIED, AT THEIR DESTINATION IN THE MORNING, HAVING AVOIDED HUNDREDS OF MILES OF CONGESTED TRAFFIC. THE EQUIPMENT USED IS THE SAME AS THAT USED TO DELIVER NEW CARS FROM FACTORIES. THE CAR CARRIER SERVICE IS TIED INTO THE CROSS-CHANNEL FERRY SERVICE. IN EUROPE THE CAR CARRIER SERVICE TAKES MOTORISTS THROUGH THE ALPS, AVOIDING THE DELAYS CAUSED BY WEATHER. THE SERVICE THROUGH THE GOTTHARD TUNNEL HAS BEEN SO SUCCESSFUL THAT A SECOND TUNNEL IS CONTEMPLATED. /AUTHOR/
