So, while this has nothing to do with autorailers, here is what I found on "BOBIK" ----

The BA-64 was a 44 light armoured car, employed by the Soviet Army from 1942 into the early 1960s for reconnaissance and liaison tasks.
The BA-64B was nicknamed 'Bobik' by its crews. The total recorded number of BA-64s produced differs even in Russian sources. The most frequently-stated figures are 9,110 (3,901 BA-64 and 5,209 BA-64B) vehicles which were built in the GAZ automobile plant, although a memorial plaque near the pictured Nizhny Novgorod car states 9,063 cars. The Red Army representatives accepted only 8,174 BA-64s, including 3,390 with radio sets; the other vehicles were transferred to NKVD units and Soviet allies.


However, this would have made for an interesting autorailer ---

Comrade Jerry ----- Здравствуйте! Как поживаете? Что нового?    Technically, these do not qualify as auto/roadrailers as they are not capable of dual purpose travel. HOWEVER, they are darn neat, and since you begged me so nicely here are just a few from the aforementioned page --Передавай привет Тане.
