Fascinating views of a very interesting special movement. It would be interesting to know the full routing and the work by the shipper, consignee and the carriers involved  to put together and modify the set of cars required. Did the shipment originate on the SP or an eastern road. Because of the clearances,  was it possibly carried by ship to Louisiana or Texas and loaded onto SP cars at a port there. Was this part of a US government New Deal funded project?
