Rumor has them definitely related to "nuclear" products.

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.

thank you, didn't have any luck on my own.

Thanks again, antirepressant.
