Technically, they are a "flat" car with a central bore that permits lowering the cargo to pass under obstructions.

Rumor has them definitely related to "nuclear" products.

Some have reported they are "nuclear reactor cores" being transported to a naval port for sevicing nuclear vessels such as carriers or submarines.


Google "DODX" and "38870".



Allegedly, the "caboose" houses security guards / soldiers. The flat cars fore and aft are to provide defensible space around the "nuclear" cars.

I knew I recognized it from the monster thread in the Japan forum. Maybe for an aircraft carrier, nuclear powered one.

Thanks for the photo...

thank you, didn't have any luck on my own.
Great to know there's a resource, AT'S, that can ID most stuff. It's fun sometimes, like on antiques road show what's this.
Thanks again, antirepressant.


Those railroad cars have been spotted in many places.
Here's another one, of the "same" railroad type, if not the same actual railroad car, spotted near Pocatello, Idaho.

It is Nuclear Waste to head out west to be buried.

Seems like they would not leave it sitting around where it could be photographed like that if it were something special.

About the right size and shape for a turban engine. If an HVAC must be a special one, most of those are a rectangle shape.

Considering HAARP requires multiple antennae spread over hundreds of (literal) square kilometers in order to aim the beam using phase distortion, one, two ... even hundreds railway cars aren't enough to accomplish that; you should've been a little reserved... a lot of sarcastic.

looks like nuclear waste containers.


On a far less serious note, was there one of these signs on it?

Replying with full on sarcasm...

The track is the antenna array...all the miles and miles of internationally connected track makes one big array.
