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


 

I’d be more inclined towards 155mm guns. 105/75mm would not likely have artillery tractors.

The first photo is of M5 artillery tractors with towed field-pieces (probably 105mm, possibly 75mm).

 

The second photo shows a GMC CCKW “deuce-and-a-half” 6X6 and a Dodge weapons-carrier on the same flat.

This one appears to be a 6x6 on an EJ&E flat.
