Oh dear, sometimes the sheer amount of paranoia here is staggering. The train cars in question are known as 85-Foot Enclosed Autorack. They are
owned by railroads, not the government. They transport automobiles and trucks not people. They are enclosed to keep people from messing with the
automobiles inside, not to hide their true intentions. There are a lot more of them sitting in railroad yards right now because of the economy and
the troubles with the American automobile industry, not because they are being stockpiled for use on the people.
The supposed "evil UN trains" are also simply just idiotic misunderstandings of standard railway equipment.
Here, is a supposed picture of the UN white boxcars filled with restraints and torture devices and such:
And here is the piece of rather mundane railway equipment that were really there:
The cars are called intermodal double-stacks and they carry shipping containers from ports all over the country.
The "eyewitness" reports of boxcars with straps and shackles seen roaming the nation are also quite simply explained. Many, many railroad cars have
load restraint systems so as to keep the freight from moving around during transit. A quick search of the US patent system shows just how many of
these systems are in use, just in boxcars!
Here's just one of the many:
The United Nations does do some railroad building, but in war-torn third world countries and not in the United States at all. In fact the AAR lists
no reporting mark for the United Nations, which is the system by which all railroad cars are designated and kept track of in North America. There are
about 11,500 different AAR reporting marks and the United Nations does not have a single one.
Here's a complete directory:
and here is a link to the kind of railroading the UN does do:
