the schnauzers,

What I remember from my most recent crossing of the Brenner Pass on a train (decades ago) was that there were trucks on low flat-bed railcar chassis. I don't remember seeing any cars handled that way, but I can't say whether that is the case today. I can say that the official Austria transportation policy for the use of the Brenner Pass by cars, trucks and rail, talks solely about "100,000 trucks" per year going on the flatbed railcars and about 12 times as much going over the pass. There is no mention of cars on railcars.
