Re: Santa Fe Freight Near Victorville - Mystery Loads

They appear to have wheels under each one, so, I wonder if these are something like a towed pneumatic compressor, or a heavy duty hydraulic pump. Sunshine had a kit load for something like these, however those were single axle carts covered by square wooden shipping hoods. A modeler would be able to create a similar looking load by just modeling the tires,wheels, axles tow hitch with some kind of plank hood. Correct AAR blocking & tie downs would make it more convincing. Signage painted on the plank covering would be a mystery for now though, beyond a "do not hump" placard.

The location appears to be Frost, immediately after the flyover, so this train is eastbound. What businesses in the LA area would ship something like this?
Santa Maria CA
