Interesting thought, but Amtrak's Autotrain accomplishes the same thing with 11 coaches and 22 auto-carriers behind. And a car fire doesn't incinerate the passengers...

i guess a fire would just delay thier travel plans , as to practicality well i guess the bopper (half boxcar/half hopper ) pattents would look crazy to us now that we know it wasnt sucessful but the inventors and the railroad mangement (BN I THINK ) thought it was the catsmeow but it didnt go over well with shippers and the rest is history as they say .
