I just got a link to this in me email. Apparently it was taken today in Watsonville, south of Santa Cruz going south.

I realize our armed forces move a lot of things around ,like the national guard etc., but I was wondering if any of our Military members might have a clue of what this movement was for? It is certainly a lot of hardware from tanks plus. This is a pretty long train load to say the least considering he didnt start filming right away either.

I can't embed the video because it is on a facebook page so all I can do it provide a link.

Any ideas???

Just thought I would post it up, just in case.... well whatever. Hopefully a member knows were it is going or who is shipping it or yada yada.

Train Transporting Heavy Military Equipment

Im trying to see if they uploaded it to youtube as well so I can embed it here, but no luck so far. Hope you folks can see it.

I can say the tanks and vehicles are in camo colors (green) and not desert colors.

WOW, talk about some heavy artillery. Maybe that what was going on at 5AM this morning. with the noise and all. It seemed to go on forever. You need to jack the sound up real loud to hear the noise.

That is a jaw-droppingly large number of tanks. Must see video to comprehend.

Enough to enforce martial law in most any state or FEMA region.

I was in Bluefield, West Virginia once (skip it) and on the train tracks must have been a mile long of nothing but Humvees. This was back in the summer of 2007. The color was tan so I think it is safe to assume they were going to the middle east.

For a second there I thought you found the video I was trying to post. Do you live near there and that is what you heard? My video is showing daylight, so maybe they passed you through the night?

Yeah Im hoping folks can see this, though Im sure some wont be able too without fb accounts. I dont know for sure. I can't even begin to guess how long that train is though. That IS a LOT of HARDWARE no matter how you look at it.

its cheaper to do a job by the job lot so i'd imagine that they needed an upgrade or something on them so they decided to get it all done in one go and given that they probably drink about a gallon of fuel a mile at best its probably good value for money to ship them around in large quantities

Look at the camouflage pattern, doesn't look like Iranian sand, more like rain forest or Afghan

I wonder why they aren't painted sand camo anymore? Moving on to a different place with a need for different camo?

Well, use to be a tanker in the army and this is at least a company size movement. I would speculate that if they are going south in Cali that they are being pre-positioned for Mr Hugo Chaves in case we attack Iran and he attempts a counter attack from the south in retaliation. Just a thought.

They all appear to be lacking cannons. I have no idea what that means.

I see things like this from time to time because I live smack dab in between Fort Hood, Texas and Fort Sill Oklahoma.

I have seen many military truck and humvee convoys making there way down the highway. I've seen military equipment being moved by train as well.

They have to get these things from base to base some how.

I don't think it's anything to worry about. If they were planning to implement martial law ( As one poster was seeming to suggest) they probably would not be preparing for it in such an open way.

It seems that they have nothing to hide with these tanks...Or is that what they want us to think?


Nah, it's just a cool show. Enjoy the rare glimpse at some of our Military's finest weapons.

I'm NC, so maybe they passed through. Who knows. I just know that sound lasted a good 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Not sure if it was from that, or another exercise.
