From the NASA Commons on Flickr:
"(February 3, 1922) The Variable Density Tunnel arrives by rail from
the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company. "

The short over-the-rails move would have been from the Newport News

The 1920-built flat is rated higher capacity than the somewhat
similar (and earlier) PRR F22.
