My first thought was the modeler had glued the load on . . .  😊


But I agree, it’s a promotional image.

I can't figure why in this situation it would be necessary either, except to prove it could be done. I think it is a staged publicity photo for P&H. Note that the flatcar's trucks are heavily retouched, and it appears the road name has been brushed out.

Perhaps a good way to avoid switching charges.

Seriously, does anyone know why this might have been done?
