The corrected citation for life magazine is May 21, 1951. 

Also mentions 9 cars with up to 4400 ft per car.

You may be able to access this issue online at

Life Magazine, May 1, 1951, pp.  75-76.

The only information I have on this Life Magazine photo is a caption that says " The World's Longest Cable" and a date of March 1951:


The man in the photo is welding something and the cars are connected by a chain as well as couplers.
