Friends,

Am I seeing a distinct dip in the BAR flat car with the tank?

Yours Aye,

The tanks are US M3 Lee tanks.  They were built late 1941 to the end of 1942.  They began to be replaced by the better M4 Sherman tanks (a lot were sold to the British). The Lee was not a very good tank but that’s beyond the scope of this group, but it gives a time frame, late 1941- 1943, that they would have been expected to be shipping on a flat car.

These photos can be enlarged quite a bit.
