Re: Late 40's to mid 50's military rail movements

If you are interested in accurately modelling how military vehicles were secured to flat cars, the technical manuals (TM) from WW2 for most vehicles can be found on-line.  The manuals all were numbered "TM-9_###", with the ### being a number specific to a vehicle.  As an example, TM-9-801 was for the deuce and a half.

The manual contain everything you want to know about operating and maintaining the vehicles, and the last section is about how to transport them via rail, and include photos, drawing for proper blocking and tie downs.
