These appear to be US Army 1/4 ton trailers. As such they would absolutely be likely to be towed by a Jeep or larger trucks.However, it is certainly possible that they could be 1/2 ton or even 1 ton trailers, which, as Ken notes, would be hauled behind larger trucks.

Are those army trailers, “on end”, behind the first ATSF gon. on the left?
They look too big to be the “jeep” trailers, so I’m guessing ones towed behind the larger trucks?
