I notice a worker is about to enter (or perhaps has just emerged from) the interior of the chlorine tank car via the dome (or should I say bonnet?). I wonder what procedure they followed to make sure the interior was fully purged of any residual chlorine. No safety or rescue equipment of any sort in sight! I used to work for an industrial gas company back in the 1980s, this breaks every safety rule we were ever taught!! Now how about someone modeling THIS scene!?!

It looks like a drawbar from the trailer hitch of the truck to coupler of the car for the purpose of moving the car around the facility.

Hi Bob and List Members,
 
Thanks Bob for these great links. I notice in the image of TELX 224 that there appears to be the tailgate of a truck. Two items of interest...
 
(1) The truck bed appears to be holding chlorine cannisters that may be similar to those used on chlorine cannister railroad cars
 
(2) There appears to be a rod or pipe between the car TELX 224 and the back of the truck – what does the rest of the group make of this?
