Hi Bob,

It’s only a guess but could it be rolls of steel? The flats appear to be heavy duty. Can anyone identify them?

Santa Fe Freight Near Victorville - Mystery Loads

A photo from the Kansas Historical Society:

Caption: "Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe manifest train (a fast freight train hauling perishables or livestock) with caboose ATSF 1810 brining up the rear of the train. This photograph was taken in the high desert of California near the Mohave River near Victorville, California by R. C. Bradley for AT&SF."

Does anyone know what are the loads on the six flat cars ahead of the three tank cars?

Thanks.
