​Andy,


Great photos!  As I posted back in 2008 ;) the car is an L&N car.  There is video of this operation as well as stills.  Note too the added propellor in some photos to disguise that this is a jet.

Gents,
Attached picture was posted by Edwards Air Force Base on their Instagram account today. It shows the prototype XP-59 jet being unloaded from an auto boxcar in September 1942.
